How it works in detail

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. Yes, that includes the Lifeguard, Lifeguard Instructor, Water Safety Swim Instructor, Water Safety Swim Instructor Trainer, CPR & First Aid, CPR & First Instructor, and  Certified Pool Operator (CPO) certification courses.

CPR, First Aid, and recertification classes require  even fewer training hours.

To register for your Lifeguard-Pro certification course:

  • Select your course  from the top menu bar to read course descriptions
  • Select Register now from the top menu bar to register for your course
  • Fill out the Register now form and click submit
  • Follow the payment instructions to purchase your certification course.

Upon receipt of your online home-study course payment, we will promptly email to you an authorized username and password in an email entitled Start Your Course (check both your inbox and spam folder). Use your authorized username and password to login to Lifeguard-Pro.org.

Select the blue rectangular blue button titled START >> [Name of Course]. The resulting webpage will display the step-by-step instructions on how to begin and complete your certification course.

With your authorized username and password, you can login to Lifeguard-Pro.org and start your online home-study course at anytime from anywhere. You may work in the comfort and convenience of your own home, and progress at your own pace. You may stop and start the home-study course as often as you like (except while you are taking a timed exam).

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.

Once you have successfully completed all your online home-study course requirements, and you arrived at the step in your online home-study course titled Schedule & Attend Instructor-Led Training Class, you should contact your Instructor or Lifeguard-Pro.org.

Your Instructor or Lifeguard-Pro.org will help you conveniently schedule your instructor-led training class. Simply, tell them your desired training dates, times, and location. Your Instructor or Lifeguard-Pro.org will approve the most convenient dates, times and location for your 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 Lifeguard-Pro.org 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!
