Don’t spend your entire Spring Break in the classroom. Get your Lifeguard Certification from Safety Training Pros in just 2.5 days! Our new accelerate blended learning Lifeguard Program allows you to start your training right away, at your convenience, from any computer. Typically, 24-hours after you register and pay for your class, you will receive via e-mail your online login credentials and you can begin your training. Your online training is interactive and engaging and includes videos, scenarios and games. You will also receive a link to the American Red Cross Lifeguard Manual so you can download it and read it prior to the start of your program. You’ll finish both these tasks prior to your in-person training with your instructor.
By completing the program pre-work, you will maximize your classroom time for hands-on CPR/AED & First Aid skill practice and water rescue skills. Our students tell us again and again how much fun they have in class and how they love to work together as a lifeguard team to solve problems and practice rescues.
The purpose of your training is to learn the knowledge and skills needed to help prevent and respond to aquatic emergencies. Through videos, group discussion and hands-on practice, you’ll learn patron rescue and surveillance skills, land and water rescue skills, as well as first aid and CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers.
