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 water rescues. All of our instructors are current Aquatic Professionals, Lifeguards, and Emergency Medical Responders. Our instructors have years of experience and you’ll get the best, most relevant training in the industry. You’ll gain the confidence needed to prepare for a variety of rescue scenarios. No one in the region has trained more Lifeguards than us!
