Red Cross lifeguard testing not only examines your comprehension of the written lifeguarding requirements but also evaluates your knowledge of valuable and crucial hands-on skills as well as proper procedure and lifeguarding protocol.
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. You can locate Lifeguard Refresher Classes in Denver by using our Find a Class Tool.
