Get Certified! Lifeguarding - Session 3

Friday, July 14, 2017 - 5:30pm to Sunday, July 16, 2017 - 5:00pm

Get certified with UL Rec Sports!

Our lifeguarding course will certify you in lifeguarding, first aid, and CPR & AED for two years with the American Red Cross. This nationally recognized certification is exactly what you need to work at your local pool, YMCA, health club, or university.

Our course is offered as an online hybrid so you can take your time to review course materials at your own pace before the in-person skill sessions begin. This not only saves you time, cutting down what once was a 30-hour course to a much more efficient 15 hour course, it also allows your instructor to focus more on skill practice, making you a better lifeguard.
