It is necessary to purchase our national training program prior to starting. After reading the instructions provided below on how to complete the certification program, the next step is to enroll by selecting “GET TICKETS” to pay the registration fee.

Steps to complete your American Lifeguard Association program:

Review all video clips and online materials
Once you register, we will email you the links to our online training videos. There is also a link to an online Lifeguard manual with CPR/AED and First Aid. You need to be familiar and able to perform the skills shown.

Participants to practice their skills
All our programs require the participants to practice their skills in the water, and upon successful completion will obtain a Deep Water Lifeguard certification as a titled Professional Lifeguard along with First Aid and CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer. Per the new national standards the certification will be valid for two years from completion date.

Complete the online exam
After you have reviewed the videos and additional online materials, along with practicing the skills, you will need to go online and take the final written exam. If you do not complete the final exam with a grade of 100%, the system will allow you to retake the exam until you pass. You may review your online material if needed at any time. You may take a break and come back.

Upon completion of above steps, you will receive an email confirming your successful completion of the program, and your records will be placed in a national verification system. The verification system allows your validated certification to be viewed by employers and health department officials. We request that once you receive this official email that you print out a copy of your American Lifeguard Association certification. In addition, a waterproof, wallet-size certification card will be mailed to you the next business day.

The purpose of the ALA training program is to teach candidates the knowledge and skills needed to help prevent and respond to aquatic emergencies. As with all certifications, employers need to ensure that each lifeguard candidate has all the skills, knowledge and necessary requirements for the position for which he or she is being hired.

We owe our success to you, our members, and we know that price is a critical concern. If you register and find a lower price within 30-days after you register, on any training we offer within 50 miles from where you live, at your local park authority, community pool, school or university, we will match it. Our goal is to eliminate this concern by assuring you that by choosing the American Lifeguard Association® you're getting the best training at the lowest prices anywhere.

We routinely scan our competitors to assure that our prices are competitive. We must be able to verify the lower price through a valid website that we do not price match. Lower prices that cannot be confirmed will not be honored. The training cannot be offered by an employer who you must go with in regards to employment, for many times you receive reduced pay for the lower priced course.

To take advantage of our offer, you simply pay our regular fee and then email us at alalifeguard@aol.com anytime within 30-days of your initial registration the online site, link or advertisement where you found the better price. Once price and source are confirmed, and the parameters maintained, the American Lifeguard Association will match it by instantly refunding the difference. This offer is in addition to our 30-day satisfaction money back guarantee.

This program allows individuals to recert their Lifeguard certification whether it is for Deep water and/or Shallow water lifeguarding, and regardless where you originally took your training. We are assuming all individuals are enrolling to renew their certification to be able to lifeguard in both deep and shallow water, but if you are needing only to renew your Shallow Water Lifeguard certification, we require that you email us at alalifeguard@aol.com once you have registered, so we may note your records. Your previous certification can be expired, but we will need a copy to be emailed to us, so we can place it with your records.

You are encouraged to check with your health-care professional before participating in the practice sessions. If a medical condition or disability exists that might prevent participation in the activities, or there are questions about fully participating in the lifeguard course, please contact us by e-mail to discuss this before the course begins.

Lifeguards are essential for helping to keep aquatic facilities safe. Unlike most other professional rescuers, lifeguards are present to prevent emergencies from occurring. Injury prevention is a primary focus for a lifeguard. Therefore, the program teaches how injuries occur and how they can be prevented. We will also teach proper surveillance, prevention and victim recognition information.

Lifeguard course participants will review:


If you can answer yes to the following questions about the swimming test, you will pass this portion of the lifeguard certification requirements.

Can you swim for 300 yards without stopping using the following 3 strokes in this order and with the proper form? You will need only to swim 50 yards if renewing your Shallow Water Lifeguard certification.
Front crawl (freestyle) for 100 yards
Breaststroke for 100 yards
Either the front crawl or the breaststroke for the final 100 yards
Can you pass a test in which you must retrieve a weight from the bottom of the pool and can you do this within the 1 minute, 40 seconds time limit? It begins with you in the water. You must swim for 20 yards using either the front crawl or the breaststroke. Then you must complete a surface dive in order to “rescue” a 10 lb. weight that is 7-10 ft. below the water’s surface. Once the weight is retrieved, you must swim back to the point where you started (a distance of 20 yards) and then get out of the pool without using steps or a ladder.

The American Lifeguard Association suggests that all employers test each candidate they plan to hire to ensure the candidate possesses the required skills. Employers should also further their staffs’ training through in-service programs to help increase their ability levels. At any time during employment, a staff member should be able to demonstrate her skills to show proficiency. It is therefore important, even after you complete our program, that you continue practicing your skills and work always to improve them.

There is nothing more important than learning how to save a life, and nothing more rewarding than knowing you did all the right things in saving a life. Practice makes perfect. Being alert, being a professional, and being on top of your skills at all times can help save lives!
