American Red Cross Lifeguarding class

BLENDED LEARNING for Lifeguard Training

The American Red Cross introduces the new blended learning offering of the Lifeguarding program which combines online knowledge acquisition and in-person water, first aid and CPR/AED skills training. Building on the same knowledge and skills as our traditional in-person only training, the course trains lifeguards to act with speed and confidence in emergency situations both in and out of the water. Topics include: water rescue skills, surveillance and recognition, first aid, breathing and cardiac emergencies, CPR, AED and more. The program reflects the latest CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) science and findings from the 2011 United States Lifeguard Standards Coalition Report. Plus, the online format enables participants to complete interactive lessons and activities on their own time. Instructor- led sessions reinforce learning and emphasize skill building.

Benefits of the new program include:

Comprehensive training that is equivalent to the traditional in-person course

  • Online lessons completed prior to in-person training, maximizing time for water rescue and swimming skills
  • Two-year certification that includes Lifeguarding, First Aid, CPR and AED
  • Free digital skills refreshers
  • Consistent delivery of curriculum to all participants
  • Core concepts focus reinforced by instructor and skills practice
  • Final Lifeguarding written exam and in-water skills testing completed at facility
  • First Aid/CPR/AED written exam completed online

Interactive and engaging online lessons allowing participants to explore information in various ways to ensure mastery of content; narrative case studies, “What Should You Do?” scenarios, videos, drag-and-drop matching exercises and other gaming elements appealing to participants

  • Modular course design allowing instructors to assign specific lessons in preparation for in-person skills practice
