Lifeguard Training


American Red Cross Blended Learning

Lifeguard Training

This is an accelerated version of our lifeguard training. Lifeguard candidates must be able to pass all swim prerequisites to remain enrolled in the course (300-yard swim, two minutes treading water, no hands & 10lbs brick retrieval). Swim prerequisites will be performed the Saturday before the first day the class meets. The “deeplink” will be given to those that pass the prerequisites and will be able to register online with the American Red Cross deeplink that Saturday. Candidates that would like to interview with the Brighton, Aquatics Department may have the opportunity to have the rec registration fee waived.

For questions about the lifeguard course call 303-655-2213.

Cost: $40 Registration

**Brighton Aquatics offers lifeguard courses with the intent to hire for the summer season and beyond. If you are looking for a flexible, positive work environment register for one of our classes offered!
