2 Day Lifeguard Certification and Recertification Course
Our lifeguard certification and re-certification program uses a blended learning curriculum combining online training classes, (A link will be emailed 1 week before first class) and a two-day, instructor-led skills classes in the YMCA’s Strittmatter Family Aquatics Center. The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguards ages 15 and older with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. To maintain their certification, current lifeguards are required to take periodic refresher courses.
