Service Description

The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional-level care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries, and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. This program offers a choice of Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED courses to meet the various training needs of a diverse audience. PREREQUISITES - Complete all Blended Learning before day one. - Be at least 15 years old on or before the final scheduled session of the course. - Swim 300 yards, continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. • Candidates may swim using the front crawl, breaststroke or a combination of both, but swimming on the back or side is not allowed.
