In 2014, Lifeguard University developed a certified lifeguard training program as a special project to see if it could be done. In January 2015, it was approved in Nebraska. Over the last several years, we piloted the course and made improvements to the curriculum based on best practices.
In 2018, we added a water park module to the course. This summer, we are shooting videos for the blended learning and standard course. Look for new instructor classes in the 4th quarter of 2018 when we will make the program widely available.
The 2014 edition of the lifeguard manual can be found here. We will make the 2018 version available with the release of the instructor course later this year.
