Lifeguard Training

Please note: The Lifeguard course we offer is for training those who wish to be lifeguards at swimming pools only.

Lifeguard Training/CPR Cost

The cost for the Lifeguard Training course is $250 per participant. The fee includes First-Aid course and a CPR course as well as a lifeguard manual. Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our lifeguarding program will help students develop skills that will be of value to future employers. Please be aware that there are several prerequisites (listed below) that must be met on the first day in order to continue in the program. Students should practice these skills as needed before beginning the class, as there are no refunds given upon the start of the class.

CPR for the Professional Rescuer recertification is $80. CPR recertification participants are expected to provide their own rescue mask. Register early to ensure your choice of classes.
