* 2021 LIFEGUARD TRAINING COURSE SCHEDULE *
Due to COVID guidelines and restrictions, the following course is offered: * AT-HOME ADAPTED BLENDED COURSE * ~ Do all the required video and workbook assignments from your home ~ Participate in remote learning lectures ~ Required (In-person) skills will be coordinated with covid health precautions
Daily Schedules (TBD - Flexible - AT-Home)
NOTE: There has always been an in-water pre-test in order to assess a minimum water ability that provides an indication of water readiness for the course. Due to covid, at this time, there is an unavailability of an aquatic facility's to do the swim pre-testing. The concern is that after doing all the non in-person skills that a participants water ability would be unsatisfactory for being able to pass the water skills and thus not receive a full-lifeguard certification....
* NOTE * The Lifeguard Training Courses provide the following certifications: Lifeguarding and First Aide (good for 2 years) and CPR for the Professional and AED (good for 1 year). - ALERT - CPR for the Professional may say "2 years", but in fact it is only a 1-year certifcation for someone who is going to lifeguard. Thus requiring a yearly renewal.
