YWCA Central Maine Lifeguard Training – January 2020

American Red Cross Lifeguard Training – Blended Learning
Spend less time in the classroom, more time in the pool!

Our new Blended Learning Lifeguard Training format allows participants (15 years of age and older) to become a certified lifeguard, just in time for spring employment! Participants will spend 10-12 hours working at their own pace online, then come in and demonstrate all skills learned for prevention and rescue of swimmers, including providing the emergency skills of first aid and CPR.

Prerequisites include completion of a 300 yard swim, treading water, and timed deep water object removal. All components are valid for 2 years. Must be 15 years of age or older.

Course Dates: January 18, 19, 20 (Martin Luther King Jr. Monday) from 9:00a-5:00pm. Deadline for registration is January 5th, 2020.

Cost: $350.00

Cancellation Policy: All fees will be refunded if the course is cancelled by the YWCA. If you cancel 2 weeks prior to the course, we will refund all except a $75.00 administrative fee. If you do not pass the prerequisites, you will be offered the next available course. There will be no refund if you do not pass the prerequisites or drop out during the course.
