If the Lifeguarding Certification has expired, the participant must register for a regular Lifeguarding class.

Lifeguard Certification Training

Learn how to effectively prevent and respond to water emergencies with the American Red Cross lifeguard training. Our courses are designed to arm you with the skills and knowledge to prepare you for a variety of scenarios in and around the water. With our lifeguard training, you will learn how quick response times and effective preparation are vital to being a lifeguard while also understanding the crucial elements in helping to prevent drownings and injuries.

All dates and times must be attended to receive American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification. This is a BLENDED LEARNING COURSE, so portions of the course must be completed prior to the first day the class meets. Proof of completion of blended learning materials must be saved/printed and turned in to instructor during pre-course testing. Email dkimble@mvpsportsclubs.com for link to online material.

Schedule of the class:
