Classes include lifeguard training, water safety instructor training, and more.

Become A Lifeguard

Lifeguards protect their community by preventing, recognizing, and responding to water-related emergencies. In order to get a job at most facilities, you need to become certified, and most employers look for American Red Cross Certification.
