Lifeguard Staff is an amazing option for lifeguard certification, operated by people who are kind and understanding and take the time to help you really understand the material. A large focus is making sure you pass which I appreciate so you are not set up to fail. I would strongly recommend when obtaining your certification to do it with Lifeguard Staff.

An amazing program to get your life guard certification. 10/10 would recommend if you are just starting out. They give you all the useful tips for lifeguarding and when being hired.

​Lifeguard Staff is a fantastic company to get lifeguard and CPR training. The owner is a nurse and has extensive medical training. The other staff are experienced lifeguards and know what it takes to get you Red Cross Certified

I took a course with the lifeguard staff to get recertified and they were all so professional, knowledgeable, and created a comfortable learning environment. the instructors didn't leave out any information and made sure that all the students felt comfortable to ask questions when needed! Ruth was so sweet and something that stuck out to me was when she gave interview tips to the class. I think that's not only important for new guards getting out there to know, but also just kind and shows how much she genuinely wants to help out all her students! i personally tend to get recertified at different places to gain a new perspective in regards to how people teach, but i would definitely come back here again and recommend others.

I completed my lifeguard training at Lifeguard Staff in one very enjoyable weekend. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful as well as encouraging; they want you to do your best. I got CPR/AED/First Aid/LIFEGUARD certified all in one class for $180, a very great deal. I made friends and had a lot of fun and learned so much. I can confidently say I know what I’m doing. Ruth is very helpful with employment, she helps out everyone and makes sure you will be your best successful self. I highly recommend this class to everyone

I got my deep water certification and then shallow water recertification through Lifeguard Staff, so I’ve experienced what getting each is like through this company. I can honestly say I enjoyed both times I went. The instructors are professional and well trained. Lifeguard Staff is a great place to find work as well. They make sure that all who take the 3 day course are well trained and confident in knowing all protocol. I’ve recommended 2 of my friends to get their certifications through Lifeguard Staff and they both enjoyed their experiences as well.
