Lifeguard Training

Thank you for considering Safety Training Pros for your Lifeguard and Aquatic classes. We offer training year-round. Our Instructors can train at your location or at one of the many locations listed. We travel from the Oregon border to Bakersfield, and Reno, NV.

There are many places for you to get training from so we’d like you to consider what we offer that may be different than our competition –

    • We offer a lot of different classes so you have flexibility and a variety of locations, time, and dates to choose from, our classes sell out so register early
    • Our classes are shorter and more convenient – we offer a blended learning curriculum so you’ll complete part of your training prior to class AND you can start your training today
    • Our prices are competitive with industry standards, and our training is top-notch
    • Unparalleled expertise; our team is comprised of Aquatic Experts who have life-saving experience as Aquatic Professionals, First Responder, Wilderness EMT, or EMS
    • Our Instructors have been teaching classes for years and have certified thousands of students – we are highly organizational and very thorough
    • Individual attention, interactive class environment, you’re going to learn a lot to prepare you for your job as a Lifeguard
