In regard to the online exam if you do not pass the exam the system will allow you to retake it over. Upon successfully completing the online part of the program the system will allow you to print out a certification that you passed and this will be needed to be brought with you to your water session.

4. We will also give you a link and password that will allow you to schedule your Saturday review session. Normally, you only need to attend one Saturday, but if you need more sessions, they may be scheduled at no additional cost. Most students can complete the full program with just one session for Lifeguarding, CPR/AED and First Aid.

If you have any medical conditions, it is recommended that before you start the training that you seek advice from your doctor regarding your capability to participate.

The American Lifeguard Association offers review sessions year round. Review sessions are conducted on 3rd Saturday of the month during the fall and winter, and stating each March, we will begin offering every Saturday until the end of the summer season. You will need to attend only one session. The times are from noon to 6pm, during the months of July through the end of April, and then starting in May, we move to 7am to 3pm due to the larger classes.

We offer both the Deep water and Shallow water Lifeguard sessions at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Fairfax, Virginia, which is located at 8900 Little River Turnpike Fairfax VA 22031. The center is just one mile west of the 495 Beltway on the right of Little River Turnpike.
