Training & Certification



To help prepare for the Prerequisites Tryouts and the Lifeguard Certification Course, a Lifeguard Prep Class will be offered at the Forest Park Pool for swimmers who have completed Level 3. Cost is $10.

To Register for the Lifeguard Prep Class or the Prerequisites Tryout, please click on Register to the left of the class desired.

The purpose of this course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional- level care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until EMS personnel arrive and take over.

Please note: This course is an American Red Cross Blended Learning Course which requires participants to complete online work prior to each session after a successful tryout. The quicker you register, the quicker you can start on the online course work. The online work is included in the cost of the class.
