About This Activity

Description

Interested in being a lifeguard? Through videos, group discussion and hands-on practice, you'll learn teamwork, rescue and surveillance skills. This course provides participants with 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 (EMS) personnel take over. Completing the course results in a 2-year certification in Lifeguarding/CPR/AED/First Aid, all in one certificate.


Candidates must be at least 15 years of age before the scheduled session. Males must wear boxer style swimming suit and females must wear a one piece swimming suit. Any person with long hair is required to put it up or wear a swim cap.


Pre-Requisites: To be tested on the first day of class.

Complete the online learning portion of the course BEFORE class begins.


Swim 300 yards, continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. Candidates may swim using the front crawl, breast stroke or a combination of both, swimming on the back or side is NOT allowed. Swim goggles may be used.


Tread water for two minutes using only their legs. Candidates should place their hands under their armpits.
