This course, offered in a blended learning format, was developed in partnership with USA Swimming to teach those involved in competitive swimming, including coaches, officials and trainers.
Learn how to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies in adults, including the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). Adult and infant/child CPR options available.
Becoming a member of the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corps is not as easy as becoming a lifeguard at the neighborhood swimming pool. It takes more than being able to swim and pass the standard tests for lifesaving. It takes character and commitment, as the training schedule and demands on a recruit are intense.
During training, a recruit must attend the weekly corps membership meeting, participate one night in swimming and lifesaving training, and spend all day Sunday at the station for boat training, surf tests and quartermaster work.
While being a recruit is daunting hard work, each one looks back with pride at the fact they got through it.
Once a recruit makes it through initiation, they enter the world of the recruit Surfman and quickly discover that there is more to learn as they sit on the beach the first time.
