Lifeguard Safety Float in Pool



This class is for students who are current American Red Cross lifeguards and their certification is about to expire. Current certification in Red Cross Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED is required to participate in the review course. Students must also pass the prescreening lifeguarding requirements to participate in this class.


Students who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate for Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED which is valid for 2 years from the course completion date.



An Informed Consent and Release of Liability form must be completed and signed in order to participate in any C.A.T.S. class or program.

Prescreening Requirements

Student must swim a 300 yard continuous swim using either front crawl or breast stroke or a combination of the two strokes.

Students must swim 20 yards using front crawl or breast stroke, surface dive to a minimum of 7 feet, retrieve a 10 pound brick, return to the surface with the brick and swim back to the starting point, keeping face above water and holding the 10 pound brick with both hands. The student must then place the brick on the side of the pool and exit the pool without using a ladder or steps. This must be done in 1 minute and 40 seconds.

Students must tread water using only their legs for 2 minutes while holding their hands under their armpits.


In the event that a participant cannot meet the Prescreening Requirements and therefore does not pass the pre-course, the participant may transfer into a later class at no charge or a refund of the class fee minus a $25 administrative fee will be given. Refunds will be made by check.
