Lifeguard Classes and Re-certifications

The Jewish Community Center of Youngstown is offering lifeguard certification courses. The online portion is available now. The in water portion will be held at a later date. The online portion must be completed before the in water classroom portion.
These classes provide entry-level participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize, and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries, and sudden illnesses until EMS personnel can take over. Participants who successfully complete the lifeguarding course receive an American Red Cross certificate for Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED, valid for two years.
