Lifeguard Certification

American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Course: $200

The purpose of this course is to teach participants the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and respond to aquatic emergencies. The course content and activities prepare participants to recognize and respond quickly and effectively to emergencies and prevent drowning and injuries.

With completion of this course participants will be certified as an American Red Cross Lifeguard which includes water skills, first aid, professional-level CPR, and AED in one certificate. Each certification is valid for two years. Prerequisites for the class are as follows:

  • Participants must show proof of 15 years of age
  • Pass the pretest:
    • Swim 300 yards continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. Candidates may swim using the front crawl, breaststroke or a combination of both but swimming on the back or side is not allowed. Swim goggles may be used.
    • Tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs. Candidates should place their hands under the armpits.
    • Complete a timed event within 1 minute 40 seconds:
      • Starting in the water, swim 20 yards. The face may be in or out of the water. Swim goggles are not allowed.
      • Surface dive, feet-first or head-first, to a depth of 7 to 10 feet to retrieve a 10-pound object.
      • Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on the back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object and keeping the face at or near the surface so they are able to get a breath. Candidates should not swim the distance under water.
      • Exit the water without using a ladder or steps
