The Aquatics Certification course is an interactive two-part course where students complete an online module and attend classroom and swimming pool sessions filled with exercises, drills and simulated scenarios that enhance their knowledge of aquatic management skills. Students will learn how to properly inspect emergency rescue equipment, develop and evaluate lifeguard zones of protection, perform in-water rescues with follow up emergency care, and identify ways to reduce risks and mitigate health and safety hazards as a professional rescuer and first responder. Students will demonstrate their competencies and leadership through active teach-backs that reinforce the individual or team scenarios covered in this course. Students who successfully complete this globally recognized International Lifeguard Training Program (ILTP) course via the Jeff Ellis & Associates Education Services curriculum, will obtain a valid one (1) year certificate that is eligible for annual renewals.
