Lifeguarding Certification Worldwide

Lifeguards supervise activities at pools and waterfronts to ensure that swimmers are safe. Specifically, they protect swimmers who may tire in the water, instruct them to follow pool rules, and perform life-saving skills as needed. When lifeguards work outside, they are exposed to various types of weather. This work is physically demanding, depending on the situations that occur during a work shift.

Many lifeguards have a high school diploma or its equivalent. Lifeguarding Training is available to verify that prospective lifeguards are strong swimmers, as well as trained in CPR and first aid.

So, Lifeguard Certification does require an initial investment of time and money. Lifeguard Certification Courses, based on geographic location, typically cost anywhere between $150 to $500, and take upwards of 20 hours to complete.

Once a lifeguard’s certification expires they must take the Lifeguarding Training recertification course. You must present your current or expired lifeguarding training certification. You must demonstrate competency in all skills and activities. And, you must pass the written exam with a minimum grade of 80% or better.
