   The Lifeguarding Course provides entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional-level care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries, and sudden illnesses until Emergency Medical Services personnel take over. The course will certify successful participants in Lifeguarding/CPR/AED and First Aid for two years. The course combines eLearning with on-site skills sessions. Minimum age to participate is 15 by the course conclusion. Participants must be registered with a personal email and phone number to receive course information and instructions to access the pre-course eLearning program, which takes approximately 7 hours and must be completed by the first class. Participants are required to successfully complete a pre-requisite water skills evaluation to qualify for the course (300-yard swim, hands-free treading water and deep-water surface dive to retrieve and swim with a weighted object). It is highly recommended that students who are not competitive or very strong recreational swimmers attend an evaluation session no less than one week prior to the first class to qualify for the course and the refund/transfer policy. Participants are required to present a photo ID/proof of age. Most weekend courses are scheduled from 4:00-9:00pm on Friday, 8:00am-6:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Most weekday and school vacation week courses are scheduled from 8:00am-5:00pm daily. Additional information will be sent upon registration.
