Program & Curriculum Approvals

It is not unusual when a product and/or service is new to a market or industry, for it to be met with skepticism from both the consumer(s) and those who already work in the industry. With this in mind, we intend to make every effort to remain transparent about our product/service/program/curriculum as we work through the approval processes in hundreds, if not thousands, of jurisdictions.

The WASH lifeguard certification curriculum and program has been developed, reviewed and edited by physicians, nurses, professional lifeguards, emergency services professionals, educators, and others who have worked in a wide variety of professions and who have a variety of professional experiences and knowledge. Printing paperback manuals are now available for $28.00 USD. The electronic versions of the manuals will be available, free of charge, to those who register for a course.

As a newly developed lifeguard certification curriculum and program, we are working through the thousands of approval processes; developing an understanding of exactly which documents are required in each jurisdiction; learning exactly who to contact in each jurisdiction; and learning what content is required in each jurisdiction (we have discovered it is not all uniform). As we do this, we will continue to:

  • advertise & market the WASH lifeguard certification program and curriculum to raise awareness of this new training option
  • accept applications to become a WASH Instructor and/or Authorized Training Center (ATC)
  • only sell the service/product in jurisdictions in which the program has received approval
