Shallow Water Lifeguard Training

September 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am - September 21, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

APU is offering an American Red Cross Shallow Water Lifeguard course (24 hrs). Lifeguard candidates learn how to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies in shallow water up to 5 feet deep. They also learn how to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until EMS personnel take over.

Lifeguard candidates are required to pass a prerequisite test before registering for the course. This test consists of a 100 yards continuous swim using front crawl and breast stroke and show the ability to bilateral breath. Then a timed brick retrieval and a 2 min tread with out the use of hands.

Once in the course, candidates complete 24 hours of instruction, and must pass a written exam with at least an 80% grade, and a final skills scenario. Upon completion and passing of all elements, candidates are awarded a Shallow Lifeguard Certification for a 2-year period.
