Lifeguard Training


Lifeguard Classes are offered at the Oak Ridge Civic Center at various times throughout the year. The fee is $160.00. Successful completion of the class will provide the student with Red Cross Lifeguarding, CPR for the Professional Rescuer, and First Aid certification.  Attendance at all sessions is mandatory. Students must be at least 15 years old at the start of class.  Prerequisites include a 300-yard continuous swim using the front crawl and breaststroke with rhythmic breathing and a timed 20-yard swim and recovery of a 10-pound weight as well as two minutes of treading water using legs only. It is highly recommended to practice in advance for the pre-requisite swim test.   Class size is limited.
