Lifeguard Certification Review

This class is for lifeguards that hold a current Red Cross Lifeguarding Certification and who need to update their lifeguard training, CPR-PR, First Aid, and AED. The participant must have passed their Lifeguarding course within the past TWO years in order to take the review. If the Lifeguarding Certification has expired for more than 30 days, the participant must register for a regular Lifeguarding class.
