Be a Lifeguard This Summer

Do you want to find a great job for the summer? How about something that gives you training and skills that will last a lifetime, while also letting you hang out in the sun and by the pool? If you haven’t thought of it yet, let’s talk about how you could be a lifeguard this summer. Welcome to iLifeguard, the Southeast’s premier source for lifeguard recruitment, certification, and training. Whether you’re a beginner with no experience, or looking to further your training and get up to date on certifications, we can help.

Your training will be completed through the Starfish Aquatics StarGuard course. The course teaches all the skills any lifeguard would need for future work at positions from neighborhood pools to restricted waterfronts. You’ll learn things like drowning prevention, surveillance, and even emergency care and stabilization skills that you’ll be able to carry forward into life far beyond guard work. Overall, the certification course will leave you prepared to be the most competent and confident lifeguard you can be. Beyond training, to be a lifeguard, you’ll need to find a position. That’s where iLifeguard and our connection with Sweetwater Pools comes in.
