Water Safety and Lifeguarding

Learn more about being safe around water

The American Red Cross is the recognized leader in training people to be safe in and around the water.

We work with Red Cross Authorized Aquatics Providers to ensure that training options are available throughout the year. 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.

This list will change as we continue to bring on more Authorized Providers to serve the community, so check back often for updates:
