Red Cross Lifeguard Training Programs

become-lifeguardBrownstone Park offers on-site American Red Cross lifeguard training available throughout the spring and summer! Lifeguards protect their community by preventing, recognizing, and responding to water-related emergencies. In order to get a job at most facilities – including Brownstone Park – you need to become certified, and most employers look for American Red Cross Certification. Obtain your two-year certification by taking a Lifeguarding course from Brownstone Park. Courses take as little as 24 hours and emphasize hands-on training, supported by classroom instruction.
