Lifeguard Training

Lifeguard Training

Lifeguarding is not an easy job. It requires tremendous attention to detail, critical-thinking skills, and an understanding of how aquatic injuries occur and how to prevent them. Cleveland County Family YMCA Association has a history and reputation of training, hiring and maintaining excellence in aquatics/lifeguarding. You will have to pass a pre-swim test consisting of (300 yard swim using freestyle and breast stroke; Brick retrieval from depth 7ft 6inches in 1 minute 40 seconds; treading water for 2 minutes without using your hands). Are you up to the challenge and ready to begin your career as a lifeguard? Are you rescue-ready and looking forward to joining a team of professionals, then take the first step and register for the next lifeguard class. If you are already certified and want to put your skills to service, please apply and we look forward to interviewing you soon.
