Lifeguard - Recertification

Select this course if you seek to earn the following certification:


Course Description: This certification will renew any of the following Lifeguard certifications

(1) Shallow Pool:

(2) Swimming Pool;

(3) Deep Pool;

(4) Youth Camp;

(5) Water Park; or

(6) Waterfront.

You may only enroll in this course if you already possess a valid, but expiring, Lifeguard certification from Lifeguard-Pro or another nationally recognized certification agency, and you seek to renew that certification.

A Lifeguard Renewal certification will not upgrade your certification. It will merely renew your existing certification. For instance, a Lifeguard Renewal will renew a Lifeguard Swimming Pool certification, but it will not upgrade that certification to a Lifeguard Waterfront certification. To upgrade a certification the student must complete the Lifeguard Specialty Add-On course for the desired upgrade (i.e., Deep Pool, Youth Camp, Water Park or Waterfront).

Course Description: This course is a full Lifeguard re-certification course. This course renews your current, but expiring, Lifeguard certification, CPR certification, and Basic First Aid certification.

To maintain the highest quality training standards in the industry, Lifeguard-Pro can only renew certifications that are current or 30 days or less past the expiration date on the certification card. If your certification card is expired by more than 30 days, you must re-take the full Lifeguard certification course.
