About the American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Program

American Red Cross lifeguarding students must be at least 15 years old by the last day of the lifeguard certification class and pass a pre-course swimming skills test prior to taking our courses. Once students are enrolled, they’ll receive the latest science-based training from Premier Aquatics experienced instructors, and develop skills they’ll use for a lifetime. Courses are available through the American Red Cross blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online lifeguard certification coursework with in-person skills sessions.

Are You Already Lifeguard Certified?

If you are already Lifeguard certified through another American Red Cross Lifeguard training provider, and not Premier Aquatics or Premier Health and Safety, that’s great!! You are already almost ready to start working for Premier Aquatics. Because Premier would like to ensure that your skills are fresh in your mind and you are ready to react in an emergency, we do require that you attend the second day of one of our lifeguard courses to test out your skills. We do not require a written exam if you are currently certified, but we do want to be sure that you are a competent lifeguard who is comfortable performing rescues and aid. Once you have successfully demonstrated your ability to be an effective guard, we will welcome you to the team.

Are You Certified by Another Agency?

If you are certified by another agency like American Heart Association, or another organization, you will need to enroll and complete an American Red Cross Lifeguard course. While we prefer you take the course through Premier Health and Safety, you may choose to take it through any organization but will be subjected to the same process that is mentioned in the previous section. To avoid having to attend a skills test-out day, you must take your lifeguard class through Premier Health and Safety.

Key Benefits of a Lifeguard Job with Premier Aquatics are:
Work with people in an outdoor setting
Continual Training
Advancement OpportunitiesAmazing Incentive Program
Save Lives!!

Once you join the Premier team, you can complete all of the necessary training in-house with Premier staff.

Don’t spend all your time working a boring job indoors when you can gain valuable work experience, including management and leadership experience, working for Premier!
