Lifeguard & First Aid Challenge Course (Recertification)
For American Red Cross certified Lifeguards who need to renew their American Red Cross Lifeguarding and First Aid certifications. Participants must be currently certified or within about 3 months of expiration. Participants will take the written test for Lifeguarding and First Aid training, as well as perform all the skills learned in a Lifeguarding class. There will be very limited review for this test so it is expected that participants have reviewed all information before attending this challenging course. This is an American Red Cross certification program.
