Water Safety Instruction

Lifeguard Training

If you are 15 or older and looking for a great summer job or a challenging career in the aquatics industry, the Tahoe Donner American Red Cross Lifeguarding certification program will give you an advantage. Lifeguarding certification will qualify you to work as part of a committed team of certified lifeguards who will work together to provide safety and protection to aquatic patrons. You could save a life!

Your certification will provide you the necessary skills to prevent and respond to water-related emergencies. Passing the prerequisite skills test during the first class and attendance at all scheduled classes are required for certification. Upon successful completion, participants will obtain the American Red Cross Lifeguard certificate, as well as certification in CPR/AED and First Aid for the Professional Rescuer.

Water Safety Instructor Course

If you are 16 years or older and enjoy swimming and teaching others, our Water Safety Instructor (WSI) course will give you the skills needed to teach all levels of swimming to both youth and adults. WSI certification is a competitive edge in the aquatics industry, and can often be the factor that gets you the job over other candidates. WSI-certified instructors are also often paid at a higher rate than non-certified aquatics staff, and WSI certification is a requirement for all Tahoe Donner swim instructors. Passing the prerequisite skills test during the first class and attendance at all scheduled classes are required for certification.
