We our committed to helping advance individuals in various aquatic careers by offering essential American Red Cross training programs. These programs include:
Become a certified lifeguard through the BTLFC American Red Cross Lifeguard Training certification program. You will be trained by experienced instructors to act with speed and confidence in emergency situations both in and out of the water. Topics include water rescue skills, surveillance and recognition, first aid, breathing and cardiac emergencies and more. Certified lifeguards are always high on the help-wanted list, so dive in and launch your aquatic career.
NEW! Lifeguard Training courses offered at the Baylor Tom Landry Health and Wellness Center are now offered in the Blended Learning format. There are two delivery methods available for the courses in the American Red Cross Lifeguarding program—classroom and blended learning. The blended learning option combines online learning with in-person skill sessions conducted by a Red Cross-certified instructor. Participants in blended learning courses acquire the same knowledge and skills as those in traditional classroom training courses.
Prior to attending the first scheduled class session, students will need to independently complete the online portion of the lifeguarding course. Upon enrollment, students will receive a link via email that will direct them to the online portion of the Lifeguarding course. Students will be prompted to create an account within the Red Cross Learning Center and complete the online portion at their leisure before attending the scheduled in-person portion. Proof of completion must be brought to the first in-person session via one of the following methods or students will not be permitted to continue in the course:
Entry into the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is strictly limited to those who meet the minimum age requirement and have successfully completed the prerequisite skills evaluation. Failure
to have attained the appropriate skill level could pose a safety threat to themselves and to others in the class. Participants in the Lifeguarding program must be 15 years of age on or before the last scheduled session of the course.
The prerequisite skills evaluation takes place at the start of every lifeguarding course,.
In an emergency, you have to be focused, prepared and confident in your skills. That’s why recertification is so important. Renew your American Red Cross Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED and Bloodborne Pathogens Training certifications at BTLFC, and you’ll always be ready to save a life.
Participants must be currently certified or have successfully completed an American Red Cross Lifeguard Training course within the last two years. Once certifications have expired for more than 30 days, a full course must be taken again. Participants must also be able to pass the lifeguarding prerequisite skills evaluation again.
Studying in Advance is Highly Recommended
This is a fast-paced review course with a main focus on the hands-on skills of lifeguarding (CPR/AED/First Aid and Water Rescues). There will be limited time allocated to book review. Studying in advance ensures that participants get the most out of their recertification course and are better prepared to pass the written test. Not being prepared could result in a participant having to come back for additional training. The newest edition of the American Red Cross Lifeguard Manual (r. 2017) is available for free below. It is recommended that participants re-read the manual and complete the chapter review questions at the end of each chapter, paying special attention to parts of the manual pertaining to forgotten or brand new/revised content that came with the 2017 update.
