Lifeguard Classes Begin Sunday

The Jamestown YMCA will offer the American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguarding 2012 on Sundays starting May 19 through June 16.

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 one of the ARC prerequisite portion of the Waterfront Lifeguard course classes. Once the student passes the prerequisites, the fee for that class 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 the 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.
