Lifeguard Training Course (rev 2012)
The primary purpose of the Red cross Lifeguarding program is to
provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills
to prevent, recognize and respond to emergencies and to provide care
for injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services
personnel arrive and take over.
To be eligible for the
Lifeguarding course, the participant must be 15 years of age on or
before the final scheduled day of the session of this course. The
participant must also successfully complete the following:
1. Swim 300 yards of a combination of front crawl stroke with side breathing and breaststroke.
2. Tread water for 2 minutes using only thier legs.
3. Complete a timed event within 1 minute, 40 seconds.
20 yards using front crawl stroke or breaststroke, surface dive 10
feet, retrieve a 10 pound object, return to the surface, swim 20 yards
on back holding the object to the starting point and exit the water
without using a ladder or steps.
For certification all
participants must attend ALL classes, pass all skills/scenarios, and
Pass written tests with 80% or better.
