Want to obtain an American Red Cross (ARC) lifeguard certification? Need to refresh your skills?
Our lifeguard class teaches preventative lifeguarding, in-water rescue techniques, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and basic first aid skills.
Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll receive a two-year certification in:
- American Red Cross lifeguard training
- first aid
- CPR for the professional rescuer
You must attend all class sessions and pass all course exams to complete your certification.
To be eligible to register for a lifeguard class, you must be able to complete:
- a 300-yard continuous swim (100 yards freestyle, 100 yards breaststroke and 100 yards either breaststroke or freestyle); and
- a 20-yard swim (a surface dive to a depth of seven - 10 feet, retrieval of a 10-pound brick, a return to the surface and a 20-yard swim back to the starting point with the brick). You must complete the swim and exit the water without using a ladder or steps—all within one minute and 40 seconds.
You must bring a completed acknowledgement of risk form (PDF) to your first class. If you’re younger than 18, your parent/guardian must sign the form.
