Senior Lifeguard Award Training

Welcome to the Senior Lifeguard Award Training program, designed to prepare participants for professional lifeguard roles in various aquatic settings such as pool resorts and water parks. This comprehensive course focuses on maintaining water safety and upholding our motto, “Vigilance and Service.”

Key Points:

Each day, we will review and address POEs (Practical Outdoor Exercises) specific to the sector covered. Assessment requires completed POEs.

This intensive program may feel overwhelming, so I recommend additional review sessions before the examination, as well as ongoing support for questions outside of class time. Daily practice is essential, given the high standards that must be strictly adhered to.

Candidates must understand the responsibility of safeguarding human lives. Every patron’s safety is paramount.
