lifeguard training program

Learn the basic fundamentals of lifeguarding through American Red Cross training. The purpose of this training is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize, and respond to aquatic emergencies, and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies. The lifeguard training will consist of three in-person class days with an online portion of training required to be completed before the first in-person class.  The online training information will be provided upon registration.

Participants may be hired upon completion of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding Course. If a participant is 15 years of age, they must have a valid Georgia Department of Labor work permit from your school. Work permit information will be provided upon registration.
