Lifeguard Training

Lifeguard training courses are for candidates interested in working at a pool. All candidates must be at least 15 years old at the start of the class and have strong swimming skills (able to swim freestyle and breaststroke).

All candidates are required to pass a pre-test prior to registering for lifeguard training. The pre-test consists of a 300 yard swim performing both freestyle and breaststroke along with a timed 10-lb brick retrieval exercise. Candidates must bring identification documents to pre-test for proof of age. A $5 fee (exact change please) will be charged at the pre-test.
