Lifeguard Training

Lifeguard Training

Our American Red Cross lifeguard training course provides a generalized view of lifeguarding skills and practices. CPR/AED/First Aid for the Professional Rescuer and all course materials are included. As a blended learning course, a portion of the class is administered online. The in-class portion will include skills practice as well as a practical and written exam. 

Upon successful completion of the course, you will become eligible for employment at Carbon Valley Parks and Recreation District. 

Our next class is March 22-24 with a pre skills test scheduled for March 6. Please contact Ryan Cook, Aquatics Coordinator, for more information.
