A review conducted by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council states that less than half of course participants can pass a skills test one year after training. Skill retention begins to decline only after a few months which is why refresher courses are so important. 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.

The American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council consists of a 50+ person panel of experts. The council features those nationally recognized in the medical, academic and scientific fields. The Scientific Advisory council is committed to ensuring that the training procedures and practices taught are the best and most current available.
