LIFEGUARD CERTIFICATION 

 

 

GREATER SCRANTON YMCA

THE YMCA WILL CONDUCT AMERICAN RED CROSS FULL LIFEGUARD COURSES FOR THOSE TAKING THE COURSE FOR THE FIRST TIME OR FOR THOSE WHOSE CERTIFICATION HAS LAPSED.

The YMCA will conduct American Red Cross full lifeguard courses for those taking the course for the first time or for those whose certification has lapsed.

 Our American Red Cross Review Lifeguard courses are for guards whose certifications are still current, but who need to review their skills and learn new updates to the course in order to recertify their lifeguard certificate.

  •  All of our courses are Blended Learning
  • Full Course participants will be e-mailed the link for the e-learning portion of the course after they have successfully completed the pre-course swim test which will be administered two weeks prior to the first skill session.
  • Review Course participants will be e-mailed the link for the e-learning portion of the course after they have registered for the course.

Course Fees:

There is a non-refundable $50 Registration Fee to hold a spot in a course.  Review Courses will pay both the $50 Registration & Course fee when registering.  Full Courses will pay the $50 Registration Fee when registering, and will pay the Course fee shown below after passing the pre-course swim test.

  • Full Course Fee:  Members:  $150  Non-members:  $200
