Title: The Professional Lifeguard (RW52)
Length: 30 minutes
Category: Aquatic Safety
Audience: All Lifeguards and Aquatic Staff
Every year, we investigate 15-20 drowning incidents, with results ranging from overnight hospital stays to fatalities. At every one of these incidents, trained lifeguards were present. In the aftermath of these incidents, lifeguards never said, we trained too much. It was often the real world practice that they were missing.
The Professional Lifeguard training helps guards understand their responsibilities and the practical application of their skills on the pool deck. The training is aimed at closing the gap between what's taught in the lifeguard certification class and how those lessons are applied on the pool deck.
