|Spring Break Lifeguard Training for ages 15 and older offered beginning March 12|
“Although water safety is necessary all year long, spring break is a good time to prepare for summer,” said Aquatics Coordinator Cindy Campbell. “Whether it is a lifeguard job for the summer or teaching swim lessons, tuning up for local swim teams, or just feeling safer at the lake for the weekend, spring break is a good place to start."
Lifeguard Training is for ages 15 or older by the last class session. Participants will learn knowledge and skills to prevent and respond to water emergencies. This American Red Cross certification course is required for most lifeguard jobs. This class includes CPR, AED, and First Aid training. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory.
