Lifeguard Courses as part of Saturday Swim School

Update:

The first course to begin on Saturday, Feb 24 is filled.

Pending enrollment

If too few people enroll for the course, it will not occur. If more than 10 enroll, another teacher is required. Pointers to other courses are expected and encouraged too. Fees are expected and not published here.

Two Course Options:

The first Lifeguard Course is to meet in the water on Saturdays, February 24 and March 3, 2018, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Oliver High School, 2323 Brighton Road, Northside, Pittsburgh, PA 15212. Plus, a Sunday session for the CPR, AED and First Aid parts of the course is going to be held in a meeting room in Sewickley on Sunday, Feb 25 from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm.

The second Lifeguard Course is to meet in the water on Saturdays, April 7 and April 14, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Oliver High School, 2323 Brighton Road, Northside, Pittsburgh, PA 15212. Plus, a Sunday session is slated for the CPR, AED and First Aid portions at a meeting room in Sewickley from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on April 8, 2018.

Insights:

A third session for each course is needed to cover the dry time for learning, practicing and testing for the CPR and First Aid sections of the class. Those sessions are yet to be scheduled and may be at another facility.

The teacher for both of these courses is Merci, the head swim coach for the teams at Oakland Catholic and Central Catholic.

Cost:

The cost to get re certified is $100. The cost for new lifeguards is $190.  You will need to bring a check to the first class period.
