Lifeguard Online Course

Dear Candidate,

This page will allow you to begin the online course for your lifeguarding class.

This blended learning course includes an online portion and an instructor-led classroom skills session. The online portion must be completed before attending the in-class portion. Most learners complete the online portion in approximately 7 hours. However, your experience may vary widely based on several factors including your PC, internet speed and previous training. The online portion must be taken on a PC or tablet with a high-speed Internet connection.

Please provide your instructor with proof that you completed the online portion by printing your online course completion record or the email they send you after completion and bring it to the first day of class. You may also show us this on your phone.
