Please note that schedules and offerings may change due to COVID-19 developments.

The Lifeguard Training class is designed for new lifeguards or for a person whose lifeguard certification has expired. Those whose certification is still current but will expire soon, must take the Recertification Class. Each participant who successfully completes all class requirements will receive a Lifeguarding/First Aid/ CPR/AED certification which is valid for two years. Registration fees will not be processed until the participant has passed the water skills test. Registration Deadlines are March 20 for Lifeguard Training and April 3 for the Recertification class.
