  • Tread water for 2 consecutive minutes without support.

  • Tread Water for two minutes without support.
  • Timed Water Activity: Swim 20-yards, dive down and retrieve an underwater object.

Course Facts:

  • Lifeguard Certification reads “CPR valid for 2 years,” however, the NYS Board of Health requires lifeguards to be re-certified annually in CPR.
  • CPR for the Professional Rescuer Course is included within the Lifeguard Training Course.
  • Pocket mask is required for CPR. Students may bring their own, or purchase one for an additional $20.

Student Expectations:

  • Attend all sessions.
  • Arrive on time to each and every class session. Due to the condensed format, exceptions cannot be made. A missed session constitutes a failure. Excessive tardiness (more than 20 minutes) constitutes an automatic failure.

All Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor offerings are “Blended Learning Courses.” This means that a portion of the course will be taken online, prior to the start of the course. Upon completion of Blended Learning, you will be prompted to print your “training completion” record. Please bring this to the first day of your course. Club Fit reserves the right to cancel and reschedule a course when less than three participants have signed up. In the event that a participant enrolled in a class and is unable to attend, they are required to give two weeks notice in order to receive a full refund or be placed into another course. If a participant fails the swimming portion of Lifeguard Training, they will be eligible to receive a refund, less a processing fee valued at one-third of the price of the course. Swim lessons are available to assist participants with preparation for the course at the standard swim lesson rates. Participants who do not show up for a course they are enrolled in will be billed for the full amount of the course and will not be eligible to receive a refund.

If a participant does not access Blended Learning link prior to 48 hours before start of class, there is a $20 penalty to gain access to complete the online learning component.

American Red Cross Fees
Most certifications have an additional fee paid directly to the American Red Cross for the Certification and Blended Learning portion of the course.

CPR Pocket Mask                    $20
