Being a lifeguard isn’t all sunshine, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Lifeguards must be trained to respond to potential drowning events, injuries, and many other situations that require immediate action. Whether it is in a pool, on a beach, or at the lake, a lifeguard needs a special set of skills. The City of Bristol Tennessee is offering a course in Lifeguard Certification for those wishing to apply for the 2018 Summer Season at Haynesfield Pool.
There will be two sessions to choose from. The first session will begin on February 28, 2018 ending March 10, 2018. The second session will begin on April 11, 2018 ending April 21, 2018. All participants must be at least 16 years old. Once the program is completed participants will receive an American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification. The cost is $135.00. Completion of this course does not guarantee that participant will be hired. All participants are subject to the full hiring process by Bristol Tennessee Parks and Recreation before being hired as a lifeguard at Haynesfield Pool.
