Are you interested in becoming a lifeguard and joining the team at Indianola Veteran’s Memorial Aquatic Center?! This is the class for you! Our Red Cross certified LGIT/LTP will teach you all the basic skills needed to become a Lifeguard. Pre-requisite skills include a 300 yard swim, treading water for two minutes with legs only, and a timed retrieval of a brick from the deep end. Successful completion of this course will result in a two year certification for Lifeguard, First Aid, and CPR/AED for Professionals. Participants must be 15 years of age by May 5, 2018. Attendance at all three classes is mandatory - no exceptions and no makeups. Successful completion of this class is the first step in gaining employment at Veteran’s Memorial Aquatic Center. $115.00 of class fee will be refunded upon successful completion of one season of employment at Veteran’s Memorial Aquatic Center.
