Lifeguarding Academy Courses During COVID-19

Due to the nature of our trainings, candidates registrating for a course will be required to demonstrate skills and techniques on each other. During these demonstrations, you will be given new gloves and be required to keep their face mask on. If you are uncomfortable with this, please consider registering for a course after the pandemic restrictions are further lifted. See below for a summary of what we are doing to keep you and other students safe while attending your class.

What we are doing:

Prior to your course:
Make sure to bring a face mask for yourself, you will be required to wear it throughout the course. We ask participants to arrive at least 15-20 minutes before the class start time. Upon arival, you will see signs asking you to wait in a line while keeping a 2 meters (6 feet) distance from other students. Each participant will be required to fill out a self-screening survery before being permitted into the course.

Beginning of the course:
Upon entry, students will be guided to a hand sanitizing station being assigned to a table. Students will be provided with a pair of nitrile gloves and their own CPR pocket mask to use throughout the course.

During the course:
Students will be given a seat that is at least 2 meters (6 feet) apart from other participants. Every student will be assigned to their own CPR manikin and other training equipment to use throughout the course. The equipment is cleaned and disinfected after each class. If a student becomes ill or starts to display any symptoms of COVID-19 during the course, the course will immediately end for everyone. The instructor will ask everyone to go home and isolate for 14 days.

Demonstrating physical skills throughout your course:
While some skills have been modified to avoid contact, there are still components of the course where students will be required to demonstrate their practical skills on one another. For these instances, instructors will ask the candidates to first wash or sanitize their hands, maintain physical distancing during the task (where possible) and wash or sanitize their hands when the task is completed.

Mandatory COVID Waiver

Every student must sign and bring this waiver with them to the first day of their in-person class. Students without a signed waiver will not be permitted into the course and are not entitled to refunds/rescheduling.
