YMCA offers last chance lifeguarding class

JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown YMCA will offer the American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguarding June 24 through June 28.

Classes will run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and include both classroom and water skills.

The program includes CPR for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid, AED standards and water rescues.

To aid in a smooth running class, the Y is requiring that all potential students participate in the ARC prerequisite portion of the Waterfront Lifeguard course in advance. Once the student passes the prerequisites, the fee for that test will be applied to the full Waterfront Lifeguard course cost.

Class size is limited, so preregistration is encouraged. The cost for the class is $215 for YMCA members and $265 for potential members.

Upon successful completion of this class, students will be certified in American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguarding 2012, First Aid, CPR-PR and AED. Students must be at least 15 years of age by the final day of class.
