Includes Lifeguard Training/CPR for the Professional Rescuer/AED/ First Aid Ages 15 and up.

A prerequisite swim test will be offered the first night of the course. Students must pass the test in order to be eligible to take the course.

The swim test consists of: 1. Swim 300 yards continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. Candidates may swim using the front crawl, breaststroke or a combination of both but swimming on the back or side is not allowed. 2. Tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs. Candidates should place their hands under the armpits. 3. Complete a timed Brick test within 1 minute, 40 seconds. • Starting in the water, swim 20 yards. • Surface dive, feet-first or headfirst, to a depth of 9 feet to retrieve a 10-pound object. • Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on the back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object and keeping the face at or near the surface so they are able to get a breath. Candidates should not swim the distance under water. Exit the water without using a ladder or step.
