Description Shallow Water Lifeguard with CPR/AED and First Aid training

The American Lifeguard Association has trained over 100,000 individuals nationwide. We have thousands of Google's results regarding all the national goodwill efforts we are involved with. The goal of the American Lifeguard Association is to improve the quality and accessibility of Health & Safety programs to the public. Our training also reflects the latest ECC science and findings from the 2011 United States Lifeguard Standards Coalition Report, which are the newest standards for the Lifeguard profession.

The Shallow Water Lifeguard certification is valid for swimming pool facilities that have a pool depth of no more than five feet. With our training program you can learn at your own pace, and can get certified in just a few days. Once you register and pay, the system will automatically email you the information to access the online training, so you can start your training and to be able to take all the necessary exams. Our training program covers the very same materials as our deep water Lifeguard program, but you only need to have to swim 50 yards without stopping to qualify for the program. The training can normally be completed over one or two weekends, but since it is a self-study program, you can set the times aside that are best for you. This way if you want, you can study just a few hours each day over a week or so, or complete everything in just few days.

Register today, review the materials on your own time at home and see us on Saturday to complete your training. Our blended program is offered year round, so please read below more information on how you can get trained as a Lifeguard any time of the year!

If you have any questions after reading the below information, please e-mail us at alalifeguard@aol.com

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 every Saturday, and you need to attend only one session. The times are from noon to 6pm, during the off-season, 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.
