We are excited to offer you American Red Cross Lifeguard Training and certification in a newly-released, ”Blended Learning" format.

Blended learning combines online learning with in-person skills sessions where you will practice skills and demonstrate competency.

Plan to complete all eLearning modules, including the CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers and First Aid final eLearning exam, at least 2 days prior to your first in-person skills session.

Most participants complete the eLearning portion of the course in 6-7 hours. Your time may vary based upon several factors including your PC, internet speed, and previous experience and training.

We recommend beginning the online session as soon as possible to ensure you are able to complete all eLearning modules prior to the first in-person skills session.
