The new program reflects the latest ECC science and findings from the 2011 United States Lifeguard Standards Coalition Report. The certification validity period is 2 years.  

This course will be a blended learning class.  Participants will register and do part of the work on line and then meet for class discussions and practical hands on work at the pool.
