Lifeguard Training


with Mark Schoon

Calendar Oct 12, 2019 at 9 am, runs for 5 weeks

The American Red Cross Lifeguard course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional-level care for breathing, cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. Successful completion of the course will result in a nationally recognized certification valid for two-years and could lead to employment opportunities. This is physically challenging, and you do need to be a strong swimmer (a swim test is required and will be conducted on the first day). There is also an online component that must be completed before certification and preferably before the first day.

This blended learning class consists of 7 hours online and 24 hrs. in person at the MDI YMCA in Bar Harbor.

Must be 16 years old or older. Bring a swimsuit.
