Lifeguard Certification & Recertification
NOVA offers Red Cross classes for Lifeguarding. Our classes are open to both NOVA families and other members of the Richmond community. We have two classes that are offered periodically:
Lifeguard Certification Class
This class is 25 hours. Swimmers must be 15 years old when the class begins, be able to swim a continuous 300 yds, tread water for 2 minutes and retrieve a 10 pound object from under water within a certain time. The class covers lifeguarding skills, CPR, use of the AED, and first aid - everything needed to get a lifeguarding job. Cost of this class is $275; all supplies are included. We generally offer this class over four days; a minimum of six participants is needed.
NOVA has one class scheduled for the Winter Break
December 20, 21, 22, & 23
8:30am - 2:30pm

This class is an 8 hour class, held on one day. Swimmers must have previously taken the full certification class, and the certification must not be expired. This class covers the same topics as above, but is geared for those swimmers who have previously obtained lifeguard certification and just need to renew it. The cost is $125. Six participants are needed for a class to run.
