• Getting ready for a National Lifeguard recertification

    Be prepared before taking your National Lifeguard recertification! It is an exam in which your physical fitness, lifesaving abilities, knowledge and judgment are evaluated. For example, you can be asked to transfer a spinal-injured victim onto a spinal board. Being ready make it possible to reduce the recertification length and minimize the risk of failure.

  • Lifesaving Instructor, First Aid Instructor and National Lifeguard Recertification
    As part of the new Leadership program, please note that the Lifesaving Instructor and First Aid Instructor* recertification will now only take place in person. The credit-based recertification system will therefore not be applicable starting January 1st, 2019.

What you should know
