The American Red Cross is the recognized leader in training people to be safe in and around the water. In Metro Atlanta and across the state, we work with dozens of Authorized Providers who deliver Red Cross Lifeguard, Lifeguard Instructor, Basic Water Safety, CPR for the Professional Rescuer and Red Cross Swim Lessons to ensure that training options are available throughout the year. Our aquatic Authorized Providers are often Parks and Recreation Departments, pool management companies and private pools, so you may find that your local pool has Red Cross-trained lifeguards and swimming instructors!

Whether your goal is to become a lifeguard for a local pool or to create a safe environment in your own backyard, we help you get the training you need. Visit this page to take a non-aquatic CPR or first aid course through the Metropolitan Atlanta Red Cross Chapter.
