You can have your certification in your hand in as little as two days – one day online training, and one day instructor-led training.

All our certification courses follow this same convenient two-part training format. Please note: CPR, First Aid, and recertification classes require  even fewer training hours.

Review the course definition to make certain that you are selecting the correct course for you.

All home-study courses can be completed in less than 12.0 hours. However, you have up to 180 days to complete your home-study course. So, work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

To reduce the incidence of no-call no-show, cancellation, and rescheduling, you must complete all online home-study course requirements before requesting an instructor-led training class.

If Lifeguard-Pro will be the instructor conducting your instructor-led training class, you must pay Lifeguard-Pro for that training class prior to attending your instructor-led training class. Lifeguard-Pro accepts credit cards, debit cards, ACH bank transfers (eChecks), domestic bank wire transfer, international back wire transfer, CashApp, Venmo, personal checks via postal mail, business check via postal mail, money orders via postal mail, and other methods upon request.

If a local instructor or your employer will be conducting your instructor-led training class, you must pay that instructor directly for that class prior to attending your instructor-led training class. The methods of payment that your instructor will accept can vary, so consult with your instructor about acceptable payment options before attending your training class.

At the instructor-led training class, you must successfully complete:

(1) All course required physical skills no less than 3 times under the direct supervision of your Instructor; and,

(2) Lifeguard, CPR and First Aid closed-book, instructor proctored, written final exam with a correct score of 90% or higher.

At the conclusion of your instructor-led training class, you and your instructor will fill-out and sign your Certification Request Form (CRF). If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign the form for you. This form verifies that you successfully completed all course requirements for certification.

Lifeguard-Pro certification courses are task-based courses and not hourly-based courses, so class duration may vary between candidates.

Upload your completed and signed CRF to your profile in the section titled ‘Upload certification forms’.  Then, click SAVE.

Lastly, from within your Profile, check the box titled ‘Issue my certification’ or notify your Instructor that you have completed all course requirements, and you are requesting your certification card.

Upon satisfying all the course requirements detailed above, you can immediately download a hi-resolution digital image of your certification card.

Congratulations, you’re now a certified life guard!

Regardless of your industry, we can provide your staff with the safety training your business requires for the lowest price guaranteed. Whether you choose to use one of our local Alaska Instructors, or create your very own in-house Lifeguard-Pro Instructor to satisfy your staff safety training requirements, our modernized two-day safety training courses are streamlined to save you and your staff valuable time. 

Most important for Alaska businesses owners to consider is that our programs are specifically designed to protect your business in todays litigious society. These days, people’s first reactions are to sue even when you and your staff did nothing wrong. You’ll see news articles where a courageous employee acted quickly and professionally according to their safety training, and brought a patron back from the dead (CPR), just for that victim/their family to turn around and sue the very business that saved their life. 

Your business and your employees deserve to have a safety training program that provides you with the industry-leading liability protection required to avoid court rooms and costly lawsuits. Lifeguard-Pro provides businesses throughout Alaska with the liability protection they all deserve. This is why you don’t find Lifeguard-Pro businesses or certification holders in the news for all the wrong reasons. You can rest assured that Lifeguard-Pro puts you in the most defensible position to ensure your business stays open and operational so you can continue serving your valued communities across Alaska.

Industries That We Service in Alaska

Lifeguard Pro: Simply the better choice

More Modern, More Comprehensive, and More Convenient. 

Lifeguard-Pro certification courses have improved upon the old, outdated style Lifeguard certification courses of yester-year.

Mission to Reduce Deaths by Drowning. The United States has suffered a critical shortage of certified lifeguards and swim instructors for decades. As a result many aquatic facilities go unsupervised by lifeguards and a frightening percentage of our population doesn’t even learn to swim well enough to save their own life in an aquatic emergency. As a result, we suffer nearly 5,000 drowning deaths per year nationwide. All 195 countries around the globe suffer unacceptably high drowning rates. Many countries lose even more lives per year than the United States. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) estimates that worldwide nearly 250,000 people per year die from drowning. The total annual loss of life from drowning is akin to the loss of life from a world war. This enormous loss of life is even more tragic when we consider that nearly all drowning deaths are preventable. We believe that the principle reason for this preventable loss of life is due to the lack of convenient, available, and affordable public safety training. That’s right, if we train more lifeguards to protect more aquatic facilities, and teach more people to swim well enough to save their own life, we could save a quarter million lives a year! Please join us in our mission of reducing the number of deaths by drowning by participating in a lifeguard or swim instructor certification course or donating to our mission.

American Red Cross (ARC). For many years, our industry competitor American Red Cross (ARC) tried to solve the drowning crisis virtually by themselves. They offered Lifeguard and Water Safety Swim Instructor certification courses to the public. However, many people complain that American Red Cross certification courses are inconvenient, unavailable, unaffordable, and even outdated. Although, perhaps well intentioned, ARC simply could not do it alone. While we all waited for decades for ARC to solve the drowning crisis, 250,000 people died per year. Today, the drowning crisis continues to worsen and worsen. We now know that no one company can solve the drowning crisis. We can no longer stand idly by while so many innocents are lost.

Lifeguard-Pro. We were born out of a true need to stop the drowning crisis. Although, we might share a similar mission to the ARC, we are in no way affiliated with them. We are an entirely new and modern organization with energy, creativity, and a passion to save lives. We make a difference. We believe that we significantly improved the old, often outdated, style of offering public safety training which failed with every life lost by drowning.

Approximately 15 years ago, Lifeguard-Pro became nationally and internationally recognized and entered on to the world stage with one mission — to reduced the number of deaths by drowning worldwide by making public safety training more convenient and available than ever before. Today, we offer services in all 50 U.S. states, all U.S. territories, and 46 countries around the world. Our certified lifeguards, swim instructors, CPR and first aid rescuers protect millions of lives around the globe. Please join us in our mission of saving lives by participating in a lifesaving course or donating to our mission. Ask us how you can help.

Quality Assurance Guaranteed. Lifeguard-Pro certification courses have been painstakingly evaluated and approved by U.S. state governments, U.S. military, countless organizations, and countries around the world. Today, Lifeguard-Pro certifications are accepted in all 50 U.S. states, all U.S. territories, and 46 countries around the world — making us perhaps the most widely recognized lifeguard certification program in the world. Our certification earned this reputation by providing the public with the industry’s best quality assurance measures to guarantee the highest quality training and education. Not only is the quality of training and education superior to the old style of training from yester-year, we offer the industry’s most convenient, available, and affordable certification courses making safety training more available to to the public than ever before.

Modernized Training.  For over 100 years, one of the forerunners in the public safety training industry has been our business competitor, American Red Cross (ARC).  ARC initially set many safety training standards for this industry, and we are thankful for their efforts. Unfortunately, training methods from 100+ years ago might not be your best option for you today. Training methods and educational options need to be updated annually to keep pace with our modern world. Today, we live in a world where we update our cellphones every 1-3 years because we want the new and improved, and the latest and greatest. Old methods and products are no longer in high demand.  Rather we place maximum value on our time, efficiency, and convenience. That’s why, Lifeguard-Pro is taking over the industry because we are in tune with what you want. To better serve you, Lifeguard-Pro has modernized public safety training to make it more convenient, available, and affordable than ever before.

Even Satisfying the Old Standards. Because the American Red Cross lifeguard certification training program and water safety instructor certification training program where instrumental in establishing the industry’s initial standards 100+ years ago many old laws and regulations still require that lifeguard and water safety instructor certification courses be equivalent or superior to the American Red Cross lifeguard training course and ARC water safety instructor certification course. Have no worries, even though we offer a new and modernized certification training program, we satisfy all those important old laws and regulations too. Lifeguard-Pro certification courses have been meticulously evaluated and approved by U.S. state governments, U.S. military, countless organizations and proclaimed to be equivalent or superior to these certification courses offered by our industry competitor American Red Cross (ARC):  American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification, American Red Cross Lifeguard Recertification, American Red Cross Lifeguard Renewal, ARC Lifeguard Certification, ARC Lifeguard Recertification, ARC Lifeguard Renewal, American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Certification Course, American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Recertification Course, American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Renewal, American Red Cross WSI Certification Course, American Red Cross WSI Recertification Course, American Red Cross WSI Renewal Course, ARC WSI Certification Course, ARC WSI Recertification Course, ARC WSI Renewal Course, American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Trainer Certification Course, American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Trainer Recertification Course, American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Trainer Renewal Course, ARC Water Safety Instructor Trainer Certification Course, ARC Water Safety Instructor Trainer Recertification Course, ARC Water Safety Instructor Trainer Renewal Course, American Red Cross WSIT Certification Course, American Red Cross WSIT Recertification Course, American Red Cross WSIT Renewal Course, ARC WSIT Certification, ARC WSIT Recertification, ARC WSIT Renewal.

Serving All. We know that offering the highest quality safety training in the industry is not enough. We must also make it convenient, available, and affordable.
