6

PREPARE FOR YOUR IN-PERSON TRAINING SESSION.
Before you attend your In-Person Training Session, you should:

  • Study all your online videos because you will be required to competently perform these skills at In-Person Training;
  • Print your Certification Request Form (CRF) from your Lifeguard-Pro course instructions webpage because you will be required to present this CRF form to your instructor at In-Person Training; and,
  • Make arrangements to pay your In-Person Training Fee to your authorized Lifeguard-Pro Instructor at the start of your In-Person Training Session.
7

ATTEND IN-PERSON TRAINING.
Once you schedule your required In-Person Training Session with your local instructor for dates, times and locations that are agreeable to you, simply pay your local instructor directly for your In-Person Training Session – Most students just bring a check or cash to class (credit cards are usually not accepted by instructors).

You should bring the following items to class:

  • Payment for your In-Person Training Instructor;
  • Certification Request Form (CRF) printed (on paper) from your Lifeguard-Pro course instructions webpage;
  • Bathing suit, towel, and weather appropriate clothing; and,
  • Lunch, snacks, and plenty to drink for the entire training.

Your In-Person Training Session is entirely a performance-based exercise. You must complete all In-Person Training Session requirements to earn certification. The duration of your In-Person Training Session may vary depending on your familiarity with the subject, personal capabilities, dedication to completing the course requirements, class size, and a variety of other factors.

8

COMPLETE IN-PERSON TRAINING.
At In-Person Training, 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.

If you fail a skill, your instructor will work with you personally at the end of class to help you meet the skill requirement.

If after receiving additional instruction, you are still not able to meet the skill requirement, you can:

  • Accept any lesser certification for which you satisfied the course requirements. For instance, if you failed the requirements for Lifeguard-Waterfront, you might have satisfied the requirements for Lifeguard-Swimming Pool (max depth 12 ft.) or Lifeguard-Shallow Pool (max depth 5 ft.). Therefore, you would be entitled to the Lifeguard-Swimming Pool (max depth 12 ft.) or Lifeguard-Shallow Pool (max depth 5 ft.) certification.
  • Attend any future Lifeguard-Pro In-Person Training Session (within 6 months) that your Instructor has scheduled with other paying students. For this second In-Person Training Session, there will be no charge to you, and you may re-try the course required skill(s) which you failed to successfully perform during your initial In-Person Training Session. If during your second In-Person Training Session, you successfully perform the course required skill(s) 3 times under the direct supervision of your instructor, you will be granted certification. To be clear, you have purchased only one In-Person Training Session. If you fail your initial In-Person Training Session, you are not entitled to a second In-Person Training Session for free, unless: (A) Your second In-Person Training Session is an In-Person Training Session that your Instructor scheduled with other paying candidates; and, (B) The In-Person Training Session includes candidates that are participating in their initial In-Person Training Session. Otherwise, you must pay the Instructor a second In-Person Training fee to conduct a second In-Person Training Session for you.

REQUIREMENT:
You must print to paper and bring to your In-Person Training Session a blank Certification Request Form. You can download and print this form from your course instructions page, while you are logged into Lifeguard-Pro.org. You and your Instructor will fill out and sign your Certification Request Form (CRF) at the end of your In-Person Training Session. (If you are under the age of 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign the form for you before you upload it to Lifeguard-Pro.org.

RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL:
To reschedule or cancel your In-Person Training Session FREE of charge, simply notify your local instructor via email at least 72-hours prior to your scheduled start time. It is the sole responsibility of the candidate to confirm that the local instructor received the emailed cancellation notice. Failure to both attend a previously scheduled In-Person Training Session and failure to provide the required 72-hour cancellation notice to the local Instructor will result in penalty equal to the inital In-Person Training fee that was due to the Instructor. The candidate must pay this entire penalty fee to the local Instructor before the candidate can schedule or attend a make-up In-Person Training Session. This penalty fee is designed to encourage the candidates to demonstrate courtesy, and reimburse the local Instructor for the inconvenience and associated costs (i.e., time, travel, gas, pool rental, equipment rental, opportunity cost, etc.) that the candidate imposed on the Instructor by the candidate's untimely cancellation.

9

REQUEST YOUR CERTIFICATION CARD.
At the conclusion of your In-Person Training Session, 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.)

To request your certification card, you must:

  • Provide all the requested information in your Lifeguard-Pro PROFILE (including your full postal mailing address);
  • Verify that the spelling of your name and course selection is accurate in your Lifeguard-Pro.org PROFILE;
  • Upload images of your completed and signed Certification Request Form to your Lifeguard-Pro.org PROFILE; and,
  • From within your Lifeguard-Pro.org PROFILE, check the box ISSUE MY CERTIFICATION; and, then click SAVE.

No certification card can be issued without the student satisfying all the above requirements.

 10

RECEIVE YOUR CERTIFICATION CARD.
Upon satisfying all the requirements in the steps above, we will postal mail your certification card to you usually within 3 days.

IMMEIDATE PROOF OF CERTIFICATION:
Once you have completed all the requirements in step 9 above, if you need immediate proof of your certification, visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for instructions on "How Do I Obtain Immediate Proof of Certification?" We can often provide you with your certification card number over the phone. You can go to Lifeguard-Pro.org, select the tab VERIFY CERTIFICATION, enter your name and certification number to immediately print proof of your certification!

(A)  Request postal mailing and pay a $25 U.S.D. international mailing fee prior to us postal mailing your certification card;

(B)  Provide us with a USA postal mailing address, and we’ll postal mail your certification card to that USA postal mailing address for FREE; or,
