StarGuard Crossover & Renewal

Course Description:

StarGuard’s Crossover requires participants to complete an online, blended learning course and a one (1) day eight (8) hour water skill course. 

This Lifeguard Certification Course is for individuals who are currently certified in a recognized program other than StarGuard (American Red Cross, YMCA, Ellis & Associates or NASCO).  The focus during training is on competency assessment, methods and approaches that are specific to StarGuard, and facility-specific response methods.

This course is also designed for individuals currently certified as a StarGuard Lifeguard who are wishing to renew their certification.

Our courses are designed and taught by industry-leading professionals who are motivated to help prepare you for the many incidents that can arise. At the same time, in, on, and around the water as you begin or advance your career as a Professional Lifeguard.
