Lifeguard Society offers 2 versions of the Lifeguarding program:
Shallow Water Lifeguarding Course (must swim 100 yards = 4 laps) – will suffice for hotel and resort pools.
Full Lifeguarding Course (must swim 300 yards = 12 laps) – recommended for rec center and other pool positions, as well as hotels Wynn, Bally’s, Mandalay Bay and Circus Circus.
It is strongly recommended to practice the swimming skills in a pool before class day.
The pool sessions will require some strenuous physical activity. You are encouraged to check with your healthcare professional before participating in the pool sessions. If a medical condition or disability exists that might prevent participation in the activities, or there are questions about fully participating in the Lifeguarding course, please contact us.
