Lifeguarding requires that one be constantly alert for any dangers to the swimming pool patrons. The primary duties of a pool lifeguard are prevention, enforcing pool rules, responding to emergencies and diligently applying specialized observation techniques. Secondary duties include chemical testing of pool water, vacuuming and cleaning of the pool, completing daily report forms, ensuring safe and clean facilities, and In-service training to maintain lifeguarding skills.
Lifeguard Job Requirements
First, to become a lifeguard you must be certified in Lifeguard Training, CPR and First Aid. The certification process requires specific training in order for a Lifeguard to successfully perform their jobs. A lifeguard at all times must be diligent and prepared to act with quickness to any given situation. Lifeguards are trained professionals and receive the recognition they deserve while working with our company.
While the ability to save lives is of paramount importance to lifeguarding, the ability to prevent life-threatening situations is nearly as important. In addition to the required certifications we assure that each Lifeguard is trained to the specific needs of a facility and provide training that goes beyond the industry-standard Lifeguard Training.
