Learn how to effectively prevent and respond to water emergencies with American Red Cross lifeguard training. You will learn how effective preparation and quick response times are vital to being a lifeguard while also understanding the crucial elements in helping to prevent drownings and injuries.  

This will be a blended learning course where you will have time in March to complete the online materials. 9 units/lessons will be offered (and repeated for those who cannot make specific dates.) Please make sure you attend all 9 units to pass the class.  If you have an issue with a particular lesson, we can try to schedule a make up with other students.  Lifeguard Certification tests will be on Saturday, April 29th.
