Description Lifeguard recert with CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer and First Aid
Location Specifics The American Lifeguard Association is a nationally recognized organization that offers a blended Lifeguard recert program, which allows you to review your skills online and then come see us on just one Saturday for a half day skills session.

The American Lifeguard Association (ALA) has been offering training for over 25 years. It is a national educational association that has the full support of both the Swimming Pool and Spa Association and Global Lifeguards, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. These organizations are all members of the Global Lifeguard Association, which make up one of the largest worldwide aquatic consortiums and have certified over 250,000 individuals, and saved countless lives over past quarter of a century.

With our program, you can learn at your own pace, at home and get recertified right away. Upon successful completion of the course, each participant will receive an American Lifeguard Association® Lifeguard, CPR for the Professional Rescuer with AED, and First Aid certifications which are valid for 2 years per the new standards.

You can start your program right away, and once you have completed the online part successfully, we will meet with you for your half-day review session.

The American Lifeguard Association offers review sessions year round. Review sessions are conducted on 3rd Saturday of the month during the fall and winter, and stating in March we will begin offering the every Saturday until end of the summer season, and you need to attend only one session. The times are from noon to 6pm, during the months of July through the end of April, and then in May and June we move to 7am to 2pm due to the larger classes.

We offer both the Deep water and Shallow water Lifeguard sessions at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Fairfax, Virginia, which is located at 8900 Little River Turnpike Fairfax VA 22031. The center is just one mile west of the 495 Beltway on the right of Little River Turnpike. We ask that you not call the JCC, for they only rent the space to us, but instead if you have any questions please email us at alalifeguard@aol.com.

Once you register, we will email the link to how to complete your program right away, and this information will allow you to go online to start your online review training part of the program and to be able to take all the necessary written exams. This information will automatically be emailed to the email address of the person making the registration, so if you do not see this information in your email in-box right after you register we suggest that you check your spam folder for it sometimes gets filtered there by mistake.

You will also need to send us proof of your previous Lifeguard certification to complete this program. Your certification may be expired to qualify to take this course, but once you have registered and paid for the program we ask that you send us an email to alalifeguard@aol.com with a copy of your certifications.

Our training covers Lifeguard, CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer, and First Aid, and can normally be completed over just one day, and since it is a blended program, you can set the times aside that are best for you. As with all certifications the employer should ensure that each Lifeguard candidate has all the skills necessary for the position they are being considered, and the employer should make sure the candidate meets the requirements in regard to physical and all other necessary requirements before starting employment.

This intuitive program has drawn interest from the News media, including the Wall Street Journal, and you may want to watch for it in the future regarding news stories about the national shortage of Lifeguards and how the American Lifeguard Association is creating alternative ways to overcome the server problem nationwide.

This program can also be utilized by facilities that only need one or two individuals trained. Benefits for facilities include cost savings and content standardization. Benefits for students include being able to study at their leisure, the ability to review portions of the program repeatedly, in contrast to hearing a classroom instructor describe it only once or twice, and the ability to refer to the training materials in the future to keep up on their skills.

If you have any medical conditions it is recommended that before you start the training that you seek advice from your doctor regarding your capability to participate.

Since 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 the understanding of how injuries occur and how they can be prevented. We will also teach proper surveillance, prevention and victim recognition information, which is presented in the Lifeguard course.
