At the Y were are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 news and information. The CDC and local government leaders have advised our community to practice “social distancing.” The physical contact requirements of the lifeguard program do not allow for participants to maintain the recommended 6ft distance from other participants.
The Y has decided to temporarily suspend Lifeguard training. This includes the following classes:
March 16-18 New Certification
March 18-20 New Certification
March 19-20 Review Certification
March 23, 25, 28, 29 Lifeguard Instructor Certification
March 27-29 New Certification
All participants are eligible for a refund of their registration fees. We will also work with participants on transferring to other course offerings later this spring. For participants that have already completed the online pre-requisites, that completion record is valid for any lifeguard class over the next 3 months. For participants in the review course, you may not lifeguard after your expiration date but you do have a 30 day grace period from Red Cross to take a review class.
Please email all refund requests, registration change requests, and any questions regarding lifeguard training to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply as promptly as possible.
This course will strengthen your lifeguard skills and train you to teach lifeguard certification courses. Courses include Lifeguarding, Shallow Water Lifeguarding, Aquatic Attraction Lifeguarding, Waterpark Skills, Waterfront Skills, CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers and Bloodborne Pathogen Training. Participants will earn an American Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor Certification valid for 2 years upon successful completion of the course.
