COVID-19: Things To Do, Virtual Classes, and Resources to Stay Safe and Informed
Join JaxParks Aquatics in becoming a lifeguard this summer. Whether your last certification is eligible to be recertified or whether you are interested in a new opportunity to be a lifeguard, there is training for you. The recertification course is for returning guards whose certification is about to expire. The full course, is a week long course with all instruction on site. This is for new guards that have never been certified or guards whose certification is expired. The hybrid course is the same as the full course however the guards would do classroom work online and only report to the pool for the in water portion of the training. All those planning to participate will need to be able to complete three prerequisite skills: 300 yard swim, 2 minutes of treading water without using hands, and retrieving a 10 pound brick from the bottom of the diving well.
Class sizes are limited due to COVID-19 precautions, please do not wait to sign up. Walk ups will not be accepted. Additional classes may be added, please check the JaxParks Facebook page for updates.
