This program was developed to give participants the opportunity to learn the basic skills that will be required when pursuing a Jeff Ellis and Associates lifeguard license. Skills learned in the class will prepare each student for the responsibilities faced while being a lifeguard. Each participant will learn water safety and rescue protocol as well as first aid, CPR and AED skills.
Some students, who complete all of the Jr. Lifeguard program, will be selected to volunteer at the Normal Parks and Recreation aquatic facilities. This course does not provide a certification of any type but does give students valuable experience toward future employment.
