Lifeguard Training


American Red Cross Blended Learning

Lifeguard Training

This is an accelerated version of our lifeguard training. Lifeguard

candidates must be able to pass all swim prerequisites to remain

enrolled in the course (300 yard swim, two minutes treading

water, no hands & 10lbs brick retrieval). Swim prerequisites will

be performed the Saturday before the first day the class meets.

The “deeplink” will be given to those that pass the prerequisites

and will be able to register online with the American Red Cross

deeplink that Saturday. Candidates that would like to interview

with the Brighton Aquatics Department may have the opportunity

to have the rec registration fee waived.

For questions about the lifeguard course call 303-655-2213.

Cost: $40 Registration & License Fee

**Brighton Aquatics offers lifeguard courses with the intent to hire for the summer season. If you

are looking for a flexible, positive work environment register for one of our classes offered!
