Lifeguard candidates must demonstrate strong swimming skills. Course participants learn what it takes to be a professional lifeguard:

  • Job responsibilities
  • Patron surveillance skills
  • Rescue skills
  • First Aid and CPR/AED skills

The Red Cross has developed four stand-alone courses to meet your needs:

  • Lifeguarding – for traditional facilities and pools
  • Waterfront Lifeguarding – for non-surf, open-water environments such as lakes, rivers, as well as traditional pools
  • Waterpark Lifeguarding – for waterpark environments, multi-attraction facilities and traditional pools
  • Shallow Water Attendant – for facilities with water attractions up to 4 feet deep such as catch basins at the foot of slides, winding rivers and kiddie pools

As of now JETS offers Lifeguarding for the traditional facilities and pools.

Additional fees may apply for this course.
