With our lifeguard training, you will learn how quick response times and effective preparation are vital to be a lifeguard while also understanding the crucial elements in helping to prevent drownings and injuries. The American Red Cross lifeguard training and certification are imperative to the process of getting hired on as an official Red Cross lifeguard. Our detailed training includes both testing of hands-on skills as well as comprehension on written tests. It is a Blended Learning course including 7.5 hours of online learning combined with in-person training. The certification, which includes First Aid, CPR, and AED training, is valid for two years upon completion and is accepted nationwide.
