The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional-level care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. This program offers a choice of Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED courses to meet the various training needs of a diverse audience. Candidates must be at least 15 years old on or before the final scheduled session and complete a swim skills test on the first day of class. Those who do not pass the skills test will be given a full refund.   Call Sheila 763.682.8752 if interested in Waterfront component.
