Lifeguarding is some serious business and should be treated maturely, you are in charge of protecting and saving patron lives at the facility.

About Training

Training is a rigorous, yet fun weekend experience. There will be plenty of dates available so if you can't make one, there will be more. The training consists of 4 to 5 hours on a Friday night, 8 to 9 hours on Saturday and 8 to 9 hours on Sunday. Although training is long and tiring, you will come away knowing skills that will stay with you for a lifetime. You will get a Lifeguard Certification from Jeff Ellis and Associates, get some of your uniform and ultimately make new friends.


Before the training, you will need to apply online. You should download a How-To guide (PDF) that walks you through the application process.

Once applied, you will be given an interview to make sure that you are a good fit and that will be another opportunity to find out more about the job before going through the training course. We understand that some people can't handle the training and there is no shame in not finishing the course, we understand how serious the job is and that it is not for everyone.
