Lifeguard Course

Lifeguard Course

At the YMCA, we believe in training rescue personnel to be ready for anything.  With our 3-day long course, future guards will receive the tools they need to handle any emergency, in and out of the pool.

Includes two-year American Red Cross CPR/AED and First Aid certification. Students must attend all classes in the course to pass.
