Lifeguards protect the well-being of swimmers having a good time at the pool, ocean or waterpark. Lifeguards protect the swimming public by keeping an eye on water activities in and around the pool. They rescue those in distress, know first aid, and can administer artificial respiration if needed. They must be in excellent physical condition, with good strength and endurance and must be expert swimmers.
BSAC is a leader in the community in Lifeguard certification/re-certification. We are also an approved authorized provider from the American Red Cross. Your lifeguard certification will last 2 years. You must be 15 years old by the last class date to take the class.
Please note: you must be proficient in both the freestyle and breaststroke and be able to complete 150 consecutive yards of each prior to the required swim test at the beginning of this course. Enrollees who cannot pass the swim test have the option of transferring to a class at a later date while they work on their swimming skills, but no refunds will be given. Bsac does not provide swim instruction to potential enrollees. In addition, payment must be made prior to the start of each session.
