LIFEGUARD TRAINING NY
"Take A Class For Life"
To become a lifeguard, do I need to swim perfectly?
No. The instructor’s manual says “the individual should not be judged on stroke mechanics, but rather on his or her overall demonstration of swimming strength, endurance, comfort in the water and ability to meet the time requirements.”
Do I have to be a fast swimmer?
No. But obviously the faster the better.
Do lifeguards have to know how to dive?
No. Most of the time a lifeguard will enter the water in other ways than a dive. Diving like they do on a swim team isn’t very useful for a lifeguard, since we need to be able to see the victim as we enter and approach them. Sometimes we need to enter extra carefully (in case of a spinal injury victim, for example). All students will be taught all the methods of entry.
What if I'm out of shape?
We work with every student to make sure they pass the lifeguard exam and we strive to make our students into the best lifeguards.
What is the New York State Department of Health lifeguard certification written tests like?
The New York State Department of Health certification tests are multiple-choice. 80% is passing. (For most New York State Department of Health exams you can have two tries if you need them).
We spend a lot of time in class making sure that students understand the vocabulary and know all the rescue maneuvers needed to pass the test.
