Campus Recreation's Lifeguarding course is a blended learning format offered through the American Red Cross. This format consists of the following components:

Online Learning Portal

Participants will be emailed a direct link to the registration portal upon completing a Preskills course. This is a 7-hour module that needs to be completed prior to in-person classroom and skill sessions. It can be stopped and saved as needed, and is most successful when completed on a computer rather than a phone or tablet. Participants are required to bring a hard copy of the Online Learning Completion Certificate with them to the Friday session of in-person instruction. Failure to provide this verification will result in the participant not being permitted to continue with the Lifeguarding course. No refund will be provided by UDCR or the American Red Cross.

In-Person Classroom and Skill Sessions

This portion spans three (3) days of scheduled time over a weekend. Each day of the course will meet promptly at the following times (see below for dates):

  • Friday: 5:30-8:00pm
  • Saturday: 9:30am-7:30pm
  • Sunday: 11:00am-7:30pm
