ARC Lifeguard Training

This comprehensive Lifeguard, CPR for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid and AED class will prepare you for employment as a lifeguard. You must be able to complete a 300-yard swim non-stop using front crawl and breaststroke and one other timed swimming test to participate in the class. Textbooks no longer are included in the cost of the class. Participants are responsible for ordering their own textbooks through Staywell at or downloading a digital version from before the first class. The name of the book needed is Lifeguarding Participant's Manual (Rev. 1/12). Please be sure to bring a notebook and pen, swim suit and towel, personal pocket mask and your textbook to every session. If you do not have a personal pocket mask, you may purchase one at the time of registration. Participants must attend all classes and successfully pass skill tests and a written exam in order to be certified. Please note: No refunds will be issued if participants do not pass the class.

Any class conflicts must be discussed with the instructor and approved prior to class.
