Gain Valuable Skills with our Lifeguard Training Courses

Start your path towards being a lifeguard or aquatic instructor! Register for a limited amount of lifeguard training courses and complete your prerequisites at once for all advanced lifesaving training programs. To participate, you must be 13 years and older or have a Bronze Star certification.

National Lifeguard Recertification Requirements

Participants must complete the Airway Management & Oxygen Administration (AMOA) certification before completing the National Lifeguard Recertification. We’ve added the skills evaluation to the beginning of this course to ensure participants have this new pre-requisite completed before beginning the National Lifeguard Recertification. Please complete the online AMOA form on the Lifesaving Society’s website.

If you need to participate in the AMOA skills evaluation to complete your AMOA certification, select the “AMOA Skills Evaluation” option so we can process your AMOA certification. If you already have your AMOA certification, you will be required to show proof of this pre-requisite at the start of the National Lifeguard Recertification course.
