How do I become a lifeguard?

Anyone interested in becoming a lifeguard must enroll in the lifeguard training course or have an existing Red Cross lifeguard certification and should apply in the spring through the City website. Applicants must pass the class as well as the skills test, which includes an uninterrupted 300-yard swim, a two-minute water tread, and a 20-yard brick retrieval.
