Lifeguarding Courses and Prerequisites

The American Red Cross lifeguard training and certification are imperative to the process of getting hired on as an official Red Cross lifeguard. Our detailed training includes both testing of hands-on skills as well as comprehension on written tests. The certification, which includes First Aid, CPR and AED training, is valid for two years upon completion and is accepted nationwide. The American Red Cross is the most respected source for training and certification of this kind.

Prerequisites for lifeguard training include:

  • Swim 300 yards continuously, using these strokes in the following order: 100 yards front crawl with rhythmic breathing (to the side or front) and a stabilizing, propellant kick. 100 yards of breaststroke using a pull, breathe, kick and glide sequence. 100 yards of either front crawl or breaststroke (may be a combination of the two strokes)
  • Start in the water, swim 20 yards using front crawl or breaststroke, surface dive 7-10 feet, retrieve a 10-pound object, return to the surface, swim 20 yards back to the starting point with the object and exit the water without using a ladder or steps, within 1 minute, 40 seconds.
