Lifeguard Certification Classes

 

Looking for a summer job?

   The Canon City Area Recreation and Park District is looking for lifeguards and water safety instructors (WSI) at the R.C. Icabone Swimming Pool this summer.

   In order to be considered for hire you must be certified and there is a series of classes coming up in May. Lifeguard certification is not a guarantee of employment. You will learn how to effectively prevent and respond to water emergencies with the American Red Cross lifeguard training. Our courses are designed to arm you with the skills and knowledge to prepare you for a variety of scenarios in and around the water. With our lifeguard training, you will learn how quick response times and effective preparation are vital to being a lifeguard while also understanding the crucial elements in helping to prevent drownings and injuries.

   The information on the classes is listed below.
