First Time Candidates

Lifeguard Rookie School

First-time candidates interested in employment may attend one of our no cost Lifeguard Recruitment Assessment programs when offered. No certifications required. Aquatic skills are assessed using the Lifeguard Certification pretest:

  1. Swim 300 yards continuously using the breast stroke or front crawl with rhythmic breathing,
  2. Swim 20 yards then retrieve a 10-pound object from the bottom, return to starting point and exit the water within 1 minute 40 seconds, and
  3. Tread water, legs only for 2 minutes.

Leadership qualities are observed and the employment interview is conducted. Candidates will get an opportunity to become part of example scenarios and learn about job expectations. Once completed, candidates must enroll and pass the lifeguard certification program to be eligible for hire.
