The American Lifeguard and Safety Training™ is a trademark of the American Lifeguard Association health and safety courses. The American Lifeguard Association has trained over 250,000 individuals worldwide. Our program's skills reflect ECC science and findings from the United States Lifeguard Standards Coalition Report. Over the past 30 years, we have gained Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recognition as a national training entity and are listed with the CDC Healthy Swimming website. The U.S. Department of Labor and the General Service Administration (GSA) has determined that the American Lifeguard Association offers lifeguard certification programs similar to those provided by the American Red Cross.
The certification program is accomplished through an instructor-led video training program with online materials and a final online exam that lets you get certified right away as an individual or in a small group. The training can be accomplished on your own and at your own pace. Upon completing your online portion of the program, you will be issued a two-year national certification in lifeguarding, CPR/AED, and First Aid. All the training materials, including the videos, will remain available to you throughout your two years of certification so that you can refresh your skills at any time. With this blended program, the employers assess your skills and encourage you to continue practicing the skills through in-service training.
With our blended program, the employers are to ensure that each Lifeguard candidate has all the skills and knowledge necessary for the position they are being considered. The employer also needs to make sure the candidate meets the physical and all other elements before starting employment.
With new national standards, all facilities must establish ways to confirm and maintain adequate skills competency for all lifeguards, including new, returning, seasonal, and current lifeguards. Required certifications and pre-employment tests can be part of that process but do not eliminate the need for on-site orientation and in-service training. By doing so the employers will meet the new U.S. Department of Labor's OSHA Good Faith Efforts.
The national standards also state that the screening tests should not be so strict that they end up excluding lifeguard candidates whose skills are not as good but whose dedication and personal characteristics could make them a better lifeguard than a person who can swim faster.
Once you register, we will email all your information and materials needed to complete the program. Students who complete this course will receive a certificate for Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED, which is valid for 2 years. Our programs may be eligible for Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and college elective credits.
You may renew your lifeguard certification with us, regardless of whether you initially took your training with the American Lifeguard Association. We ask that you email us a copy of your previous certification to firstname.lastname@example.org once you registered so that we may keep a copy with your records.
The purpose of the American Lifeguard course is to teach candidates the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and respond to aquatic emergencies. Upon completing the Lifeguard course, each participant will receive an American Lifeguard Certificate indicating Lifeguard, CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer, and First Aid, all valid for two years. As with all certifications, the employer should ensure that each Lifeguard candidate has all the skills and knowledge necessary for the position they are being considered. The employer needs to make sure the candidate meets the physical and all other elements before starting employment.
