Red Cross lifeguard certification is one of the most widely recognized in the United States.  We train lifeguards to recognize potential emergencies, respond to incidents and accidents, and to behave in a professional manner. 

The Lifeguard certification course is offered as a blended learning, we start with a pre-course swim test, this swim test is a requirement to be able to participate in the online or in person portion of the lifeguarding class. Once the swim test is complete, there are 8 hours of online work followed by 8-10 hours of in water skills practice. All necessary training materials will be provided to class participants. 

Pre-Course Swim Test:

1) Swim 300 yards (6 laps), freestyle, breaststroke or side stroke without stopping.

2) Tread Water for 2 minutes with no hands.

3) Starting from the shallow end swim down to the deep end, retrieve the 10lb brick from the bottom of 9 feet and swim the brick back keeping the brick (your victim) above water. You have 1 minute and 40 seconds for this exercise.

This Certificate is good for 2 years.
