Taught by Teach America To Swim, our lifeguard training program is specifically designed to better train lifeguards to prevent and respond to emergencies in an aquatic environment. We offer a blended training course which consists of a comprehensive online home-study and a three-day in-person training session. Our home-study course is far more rigorous than the industry standard, and therefore, reduces your in-person training requirement by 50%. All candidates are required to complete their home-study course prior to attending our convenient three-day in-person training session to maximize training time.

Upon successful completion of the course participants will receive a certification in American Red Cross Lifeguarding, First Aid, CPR and AED, which is valid for two years upon completion and is accepted nationwide.

-Be at least 15 years old by the last day of the course
