The Wellington Aquatics Complex will host an American Red Cross lifeguard certification class this month. This class teaches entry-level participants the expertise needed to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies, and to provide care until emergency personnel arrive. Wellington’s lifeguard certification class will take place June 11-13 and June 17-18.
Participants must be able to attend all five class dates in order to complete the certification. To register, participants must be at least 15 years of age, be able to swim 300 yards continuously, and pick up a brick from a water depth of 10 feet. The registration fee is $235 and includes the lifeguarding course, certification and all new American Red Cross course materials.
