Free Lifeguard Training!

Have you always wanted to be an American Red Cross certified lifeguard?  Would you like to take the training for FREE?  Are you looking for a great job opportunity?

Bloomington Community Education is offering three classes to certify and train lifeguards for their aquatics program.  Those completing and passing the course objectives and a written exam will become certified in Lifeguarding, First Aid, and CPR.
Participants must be at least 16 years old.  Employment as a lifeguard in the aquatics program would be pending an interview, background check, and paperwork.  The $250 class fee would be waived with a commitment to six months employment.

July 30 – August 9
Classes are Mondays – Thursdays, 12:30-4:30pm, at Valley View Middle School Pool.
