Assistant & Lifeguard Courses
Parks and Rec also offers Red Cross Assistant Lifeguard and Lifeguard courses when there is enough interest to run the courses. The Assistant Lifeguard course is a pre-requisite course to the professional lifeguard certifciation that teaches knowledge and practice of first aid, rescue skills, lifeguarding skills, safe behaviours, and how to be part of an elite team. This ensures youth are trained in preventation of injuries, not just how to respond to them.
