Online Home-Study Course
More Convenient. Our certification courses all include a comprehensive online preparatory Home-Study Course that your staff can complete from anywhere in the world prior to arriving at your camp.
Better Training. Our Home-Study Course is about 10 times more comprehensive than that of our competitor. We do not offer a course simply to make it easy for the lifeguard candidate. We represent your interests and we guarantee that your staff is trained to superior standards.
Cuts In-Person Training Time in Half. Take advantage of our comprehensive online Home-Study Course. Your staff will already be 50% completed with their certification courses when they arrive at your camp. Better train your staff and cut required in-person training time in half!
Legally Document Your Staff Training. All of your staff's online training activities are tracked and recorded for your benefit to better protect you in the event of a Wrongful Death or Personal Injury lawsuit against your camp. In the event of a lawsuit against your camp, you will likely be required to provide extensive documentation detailing your precise staff training to prove that your staff was trained and certified in accordance with youth camp regulations, U.S. Department of Labor regulations, state laws, state regulations, your insurance policy requirements, and the published training requirements of your certification company. Our competitor's certification courses do NOT document the precise training provided to your staff, which can create a very expensive legal problem for you. Failure to precisely document your staff knowledge and training can create a hazard to your campers, and even put your youth camp out of business!
Fortunately for you, all Lifeguard-Pro courses require every certification candidate to turn every page of each textbook, answer approximately two questions per page, view every video from start to finish, and answer every exam question with a total 90% correct score or higher. And, we document all of it in your candidate's records so that you can prove that your staff was meticulously trained to comply with all youth camp regulations, U.S. Department of Labor regulations, state laws, state regulations, your insurance policy requirements, and the published training requirements of your certification company.
Ignorance is Not a Legal Justification. Most youth camps don’t know they may be legally ordered to provide documentary proof of all knowledge and skills taught to their staff during their staff's safety training and certification process. Most youth camps discover that they should have legally documented the safety training and certification process only after a court has ordered them to produce records that they do not have. Let Lifeguard-Pro protect you with thoroughly documented staff training!
Lifeguard-Pro was specifically designed to better protect your youth camp in the event of a Wrongful Death or Personal Injury lawsuit. We thoroughly document your staff training to better legally protect you. Don't let poor quality safety training documentation jeopardize the continued existence of your youth camp. Let our experience be your benefit!
One-Day In-Person Training at Your Camp
Professional Instructors Come to Your Camp. Unlike our competitor, we do not use inexperienced, part-time, seasonal, or volunteer instructors to conduct your staff's lifesaving training, just to save us money. Rather, we believe that your staff's lifesaving safety training should be provided only by experienced, professional rescue instructors. After all, the quality of your staff safety training can have life and death consequences to your campers, and catastrophic financial consequences to your youth camp. That is why we send only experienced, professional instructors to your camp to train your staff. Don't you agree that your camp safety training should be conducted by experienced, professional instructors?
We Provide Training at Your Camp. After successfully completing our comprehensive online preparatory Home-Study Course, your staff will be fully prepared to participate in a comprehensive ONE-DAY (12 hours) in-person training session at your camp. The in-person training session usually begins immediately after breakfast and continues to the end of your staff's work day. During our ONE-DAY (12 hours) in-person training session at your camp, our experienced, professional instructors, will lead your staff through all the physical skills required for certification. Each candidate will successfully perform each required physical skill no less than 3 times, while under the direct supervision of our instructor. Our competitor requires candidates only to successfully perform each required skill once. Lifeguard-Pro elevates the industry standard for lifeguard training!
We train at your facility, so that your staff can be trained in the environment in which they will be working. Training at your job site and practicing your facility’s Emergency Action Plan and Standard Operating Procedures undoubtedly make better lifeguards and a safer swimming area. We believe it is simply a poor risk management solution to employ lifeguards that have been generically trained at a far away location by an unknown (possibly volunteer) instructor, when the quality of their training can be the difference between life and death for your campers. Quality safety training saves lives and protects your camp from lawsuits!
Students Unable to Pass Course. We understand that you may have a significant investment in your youth camp staff. You may have even hired them from outside of the U.S.A. We respect that you may not be able to easily replace staff members, if they fail the course. Therefore, if a candidate is unable to successfully complete all course requirements during the scheduled class, our staff will work with the challenged candidates for up to an additional 4.0 hours to help them improve their performance so that they can satisfy all certification requirements. If after additional instruction the candidate is still unable to satisfy all course instructions, the candidate will be invited to participate in any neighboring youth camp training session at no additional charge. Lifeguard-Pro works for you!
Reserve Your In-Person Training Date. Not only do we send experienced, professional instructors to your youth camp to conduct your staff required safety training, we do it on the date you reserve. That's right, you can have us professionally conduct your staff safety training at your camp on the date you reserve. Lifeguard-Pro services all 50 U.S. states, and up to 30 countries around the world. So no matter where you are, we're nearby!
Lifeguard-Pro services so many youth camps across the country and around the world, and most of them open for business at the same time. Consequently, we sell out every year from March 1 - July 31. So if you are considering using our services, please book early. Don't miss this great opportunity!
