American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification

Lifeguard Training:

The American Red Cross Lifeguard class certifies students as lifeguards for two years.  This class also includes certification for CPR for the Professional Rescuer.  This class teaches students how to recognize and respond to emergencies related to water safety.  Successful completion of this course ensures lifeguard certification; however, it does not guarantee summer employment as a lifeguard.
Students should come prepared to swim and should bring clothes to wear on the pool deck.  (The swimming pool is an outdoor pool and can be cold at night.)  An extra set of clothing is recommended for changing into for classroom sessions.


Course Information:

Course Fee:  $200 per student


The course has the following prerequisites: students must be at least 15 years old, in good physical condition, able to swim 500 yards without stopping, able to swim freestyle, breast stroke, sidestroke, able to retrieve a 10lb. brick from 7ft. water, and able to tread water without hands for two minutes.  Students must complete the prerequisite swim and exercises on the scheduled date in order to be issued a seat in the course.



Please contact Rance Massengill  at 850-718-2440 if you have any questions regarding lifeguard certification.  In order to be registered in the course, course fees must be paid; otherwise, you will not be considered a registered member of the course.
