The City is accepting registration for its lifeguard training course, which is designed to educate candidates in the skills and knowledge necessary to prevent and respond to aquatic emergencies.
The course will be offered in three 3-day sessions in March, April and May at the City’s Montanoso Recreation Center.
Effective lifeguard training develops the lifeguard’s ability to prevent drownings by providing lifeguards an opportunity to integrate their experience, judgment and rescue skills. Participants will receive American Red Cross certification in Lifeguard Training, First Aid and CPR for the professional rescuer to help prepare for an emergency.
To participate in the training, candidates must be at least 15 years old. Community members can opt for any one of the following training sessions that take place from 4:30 to 9 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The first session takes place on March 26, 27 and 28. The second session will be held April 23, 24 and 25, followed by the final course scheduled for May 21, 22 and May 23.
Cost is $140 and includes books and materials. Registration is available at the Montanoso Recreation Center, 25800 Montanoso Drive, or at the City’s Sierra Recreation Center, 26887 Recodo Lane. For more information, call 949-859-4348, Ext 5720.
