Preferred by Government Agencies, Employers, Insurance Companies & Lifeguards Around The World


Lifeguard Instructors Are Leaving the Old & Out-Dated Programs. Lifeguard Instructors around the globe are abandoning the old and outdated Lifeguard training certification programs, such as the American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Program, and YMCA Lifeguard Training Program. Those programs are bogged down with bureaucratic obstacles, administrative delays, jurisdictional restrictions, excessive costs of books and teaching supplies, and much more.

Lifeguard Instructors Choose the Innovative Lifeguard-Pro Training Program. Lifeguard Instructors commonly site the following reasons as to why they love teaching the Lifeguard-Pro Lifeguard certification program more than any other Lifeguard training certification program.

(1) WORLDWIDE JURISDICTION. Lifeguard-Pro Instructors can conduct Lifeguard training courses around the world--not just in their local jurisdiction.

(2) LOWER CERTIFICATION COST. The cost of books, teaching materials and certification cards is MUCH less than with the other less modernized national Lifeguard certification programs.

(3) ONLINE ACDEMIC TRAINING. Lifeguard-Pro conducts all the Lifeguard candidate online testing BEFORE the candidate is allowed to attend in-person training with the Lifeguard Instructor. Lifeguard Instructors don't have to administer time consuming paperwork. Lifeguard Instructors don't have to teach to unprepared and uninformed students anymore. That means Lifeguard Instructors can focus on teaching shorter, high impact, and high quality in-person training sessions.

(4) SHORT IN-PERSON TRAINING CLASSES. Because all candidates must have successfully completed the online academic training prior to attending in-person training with a Lifeguard Instructor, Lifeguard Instructors can teach shorter, high impact, and high quality  in-person training classes that focus only on teaching physical Lifeguard skills.

(5) LESS PAPERWORK. Issuing a Lifeguard candidate a certification card is now so much easier than ever before. To issue a Lifeguard certification card the Lifeguard Instructor need only conduct the in-person training and then sign the candidate's Lifeguard Certification Request Form. That's it! Lifeguard-Pro does the rest!

(6) LIFEGUARD-PRO SENDS YOU STUDENTS. When candidates inquire with Lifeguard-Pro about where they can take an in-person Lifeguard training class, we referring the students in your area directly to you!

(7) STUDENTS PAY INSTRUCTORS DIRECTLY. Lifeguard-Pro refers students in your area directly to you for in-person training; and, the students pay you directly BEFORE you ever begin their in-person Lifeguard training class.

(8) ONLINE LIFEGUARD VERIFICATION DATABASE. Lifeguard Instructors can rest assured that their students have been timely issued certification cards by verifying the issuance and validity of every student's Lifeguard certification instantly online.

(9) LIFEGUARD CANDIDATES PREFER LIFEGUARD-PRO. More and more students choose the Lifeguard-Pro Lifeguard certification course over the Lifeguard training programs of yester-year because of the convenience of the Lifeguard-Pro University-Style Home-Study Course, fewer in-person training classes, immediate Temporary Certification, online certification verification, and much, much more! As a Lifeguard Instructor, it is easier to promote your Lifeguard certification classes to your students, when your course is as student-friendly and convenient as the Lifeguard-Pro program.  

(10) GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, EMPLOYERS, INSURANCE COMPANIES PREFER LIFEGUARD-PRO. Lifeguard-Pro has the strongest quality assurance program in the entire Lifeguard training industry. It requires a more in-depth demonstration of lifeguarding knowledge, more comprehensive Lifeguard academic program, and annual renew of all Lifeguard certification knowledge and skills. Lifeguard-Pro better prevents accidents and injuries at aquatic facilities by better training Lifeguards and requiring Lifeguards to stay current with their lifeguarding knowledge and skills. That is why Government Agencies, Employers and Insurance Companies prefer Lifeguard-Pro--the safer choice. As a Lifeguard Instructor, it is easier to promote your Lifeguard certification classes to your corporate and commercial clients because they always prefer the safer program that will better prevent accidents, injuries and lawsuits.

Lifeguard Instructors Prefer to Teach the Lifeguard-Pro Program

Online Lifeguard Certification Course

Lifeguard Certification Agency offers Youth Camp Lifeguarding Course

Lifeguard Certification Agency offers Youth Camp Lifeguarding Course.  Lifeguard-Pro created the first and only Specialty Lifeguard program for Youth Camps, where Lifeguards are responsible for safeguarding high numbers of children simultaneously involved in a multitude of activities. This swimming environment created an extreme hazard to children and an unacceptable legal risk to aquatic facility operators. The Lifeguard-Pro Specialty Lifeguard - Youth Camp training course has solved both of these problems!


Lifeguard-Pro contends traditional lifeguarding courses do not adequately train Lifeguards to safeguard children at youth camp aquatic facilities. The Youth Camp aquatic environment requires special and advanced training. To better reduce the risk of accidents, deaths by drowning, and unnecessary lawsuits, Youth Camp Directors are choosing the Lifeguard-Pro Youth Camp Specialty Lifeguard Course. Isn't it time that you learned more about it?

Lifeguard Certification Agency offers Deep Water Pool (Diving Well) Lifeguard Course.  Lifeguard-Pro created the first and only Specialty Lifeguard program for Deep Water Pools (i.e., diving wells and pools with depth greater than 12 ft.). Lifeguard-Pro had identified the unique and extreme risk of Deep Water Pools, and that no existing Lifeguard training program prepared Lifeguards to safely supervise these types of pools. As a result, patrons of Deep Pools were exposed to unnecessary hazards, and aquatic facilities with Deep Pools were exposed to extreme legal liability. Lifeguard-Pro has solved the hazard of operating Deep Water Pools! That is why univerisites, colleges, high schools, swim schools, and operators of competition swimming pools with diving wells choose Lifeguard-Pro to train their Lifeguarding staff.
