Our training is available as a traditional, in-person course totaling 25 hours and 20 minutes while our blended learning course totals 19.5 hours in person and 7.5 hours online. In order to become certified you must be 15 years of age and have passed the pre-course swimming skills test.
The American Red Cross has three courses that are featured during Lifeguard training in Glendale: Lifeguarding, Shallow Water Lifeguarding (water up to 5 feet deep) and Aquatic Attraction Lifeguarding (water up to 3 feet deep). A two year certification in Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED is issued upon successful completion of our training and coursework. A digital certification is available upon completion.
The American Red Cross Lifeguard Manual was created to assist you in your Glendale Lifeguard training while also answering all of your questions, from basic water safety to how to best respond in an emergency situation. The Red Cross Lifeguarding Manual is available in both a digital format as well as a traditional printed version.
The American Red Cross lifeguarding review classes are designed to help you update your skills while renewing your certification for another two years. For those whose certification is still valid (or within 30 days of expiring), our renewal courses allow you to continue to work without a lapse in verification.
