Life Guard Course Program

arnprior bluefish

Hi Blue Fish Swimmers and Family members!

Just dropping a note to advise you that on February 7th to March 8th, Certification Courses begin for Bronze Medallion.

Life Guarding is a great part-time job as a student.  It pays well, and provides valuable life saving experience and builds on your Blue Fish training.  There are great opportunities for summer employment, as well as future life guarding opportunities while attending College or University.

Life guarding is also a great resume builder, providing great skill development for future occupations in emergency services and health care work.  Many employers value the training and determination it takes to become a life saver!

So if you meet the following requirements, consider applying…

Prerequisites:  13 years old/ or 12 years old having already completed the Bronze Star course

The next course after Bronze Medallion is the Bronze Cross.

The winter session runs, Saturday and Sunday 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Cost in town $140.00 out of town $170.00.+ HST

Consult page 19 of the Arnprior Life Magazine, (found at the Nick Smith Centre) Fall and Winter 2014 for more details.

Thank you and good luck!
