Upcoming Training Schedule
All class fees include the costs of course materials such as books, pocket masks, and certification cards. All materials are distributed on the first day of the class; however, you can have your materials sent to you prior to the start of the course for an additional fee of $15. If you would like this option, please indicate so at the time of registration. All materials must be returned UNMARKED in order to receive a full refund, otherwise you will be charged for the course materials.
Some American Red Cross courses such as the Lifeguard Training and WSI courses, require a pretest as part of the course. These pretests typically take place the first scheduled day of the course. Students should check with the Aquatics office to find out the exact time and location of their pretest. Please remember this pretest is MANDATORY and failure to attend will result in a failure of the course with NO refund.
Proof of Age
The American Red Cross mandates that candidates show valid proof of age by the second class meeting for those courses that have minimum age requirements. We are not permitted to waive the minimum age requirements for any of our training courses.
Certification/Completion of Course
Although our goal as instructors is to help students successfully complete their certification goals, students are sometimes not able to adequately complete the stated requirements for the course. Payment of the course fee and participation in class does not guarantee certification; students must successfully complete all course objectives in order to be certified.
If you and/or your child have questions or concerns regarding your/their ability to pass this course, please contact the Aquatics Department PRIOR to registering.

Lifeguard Training Review Course(r.12)
