Q: Do I need to provide my current lifeguard certification to complete a lifeguard refresher class?
Yes. Without proof of current certification, you cannot take the refresher class. Please email a copy of your certification card to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Do I have to take the Recertification class before my existing certification expires?
Yes. You can only take the Recertification class if your current certifications are still valid. Certifications must be valid the day the Recertification course begins.
Q: My current certification expires before the Recertification course, what should I do?
You should look for a recertification class that begins before your certification expires. If you can't find one and your certification expires, then you'll have to take the Lifeguarding: Full Certification course again.
Q: What if I can’t make it to all classes?
To get recertified you must attend 100% of the classes. If you don't, you won't be recertified, and no refund will be given.
Q: What is your Cancellation / Transfer Policy?
You must give us a 48 hour notice if you would like to cancel or switch to a different class.
Q: Can I choose my pool location/assignment if I come work for you?
If there is a position still available at that pool, we will do our best to place you at the pool you requested.
Q: Do I have to buy a textbook?
No. All required books and supplies are included in the cost of the course.
Q: What do I need to bring to class?
Picture ID that shows your date of birth
Sunglasses & sunscreen, if class held at an outdoor pool
Towels – you will want extras
Warm Comfortable Clothing and a second set of clothes
Swim goggles (optional)
Pen, pencil, highlighter, paper for taking notes
Money for lunch or bring a sack lunch (there is no refrigerator)
Q: Should I call someone, if I still have a question?
Yes, we'd be happy to speak with you! Call Caitlin at (770) 992-7665.
