About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

This course provides the essential training necessary to work as a professional lifeguard. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive certifications in Lifeguarding/ CPR for the Professional Rescuer/ First Aid/ AED. **Please note, must currently be an American Red Cross certified Lifeguard to participate in the review course.

Participants must attend all portions of the course to be eligible for certification. All participants must complete the pre-course swim test, which includes a 300-yard continuous swim and simulated water rescue requiring a surface dive to a depth of 7-10 feet. The purpose of the pre-course test is to ensure that the participant demonstrates comfort in the water, along with enough speed, strength and endurance to perform a combination of basic skills that are required and built upon throughout the course. No refunds will be given to those who do not successfully complete course.

Upon successful completion of class, participant would receive certification and commit to full time employment with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board for the Aquatic Season. The terms of the waived class fee are contingent to this commitment. Failure to fulfill the employment commitment will result in the class fees of $230 being assessed to the participant.
