Lifeguard Blended Learning Course

Lifeguarding:

Through videos, group discussion and hands-on practice, you’ll learn teamwork, rescue and surveillance skills, First Aid, and CPR/AED skills needed to work as a professional lifeguard. Must be at least 15 years old and pass prerequisite swimming requirements:

1) 300 yard swim using freestyle, breaststroke or both. Participants must demonstrate rhythmic breathing and a stabilizing, propellant kick. Rhythmic breathing can be performed either by breathing to the side or to the front (goggles may be used).

2) Two minutes of treading water without using your arms. Participants will place their hands under their armpits, on their shoulders, or behind their back.

3) The brick test: Starting in the water, swim 20 yards using front crawl or breaststroke, surface dive 7–10 feet, retrieve a 10-pound object, return to the surface, swim 20 yards back to the starting point with the object and exit the water without using a ladder or steps, within 1 minute, 40 seconds (goggles may not be used).

Must attend all class dates. Successful completion results in a 2-year certification in Lifeguarding.
