COVID-19 update: We are excited to once again be able to offer life guard certification courses. Please see the chart below for scheduled courses. If enrolling in a blended learning course or recert course, make sure to complete the online portion of the class prior to the first day of class. Make sure to wear a face mask to class and keep it on at all times when out of the water. We will be taking all of the precautions we can, but there is a certain amount of assumed risks since we must train and practice water rescues which requires close contact.
