Blended E-Learning Online img
Blended E-Learning Online

For those lifeguard candidates that have schedules too busy or complicated to commit to the full classroom experience and have the discipline for self-study, the Blended e-Learning Lifeguard class combines an online content delivery system with in-person skills and technique practice at our facility.

Web-based content delivery enables lifeguard candidates to study for certification at their own pace, as their schedule allows. Candidates come to in-water sessions to learn and practice the techniques. In-water sessions are offered on the last weekend of every month (Saturday and Sunday). Students are expected to commit to both days of the same weekend in order to complete their session. Students must show proof that the online portion of the lesson is complete before they will be permitted to attend the in-water skill session.

Candidates must successfully complete both the online and in-water skill session to be certified.
