Lifeguard Certification

Course description

**Premier Aquatics Team Members only** (Looking to work with Premier? Visit our Careers page!!)

StarGuard’s Lifeguard Blended Learning course requires participants to complete an online component and (2) day in-person course, both with classroom and water training.

This Lifeguard Certification Course provides entry-level lifeguard participants (or Lifeguards with previous certification through American Red Cross, YMCA, or Ellis and Associates) with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize, and respond to aquatic emergencies and care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries, and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over.

Our courses are designed and taught by industry-leading professionals who are motivated and passionate to help prepare you for a variety of scenarios you may be faced with in, on, and around the water.
