Junior Lifeguarding course
The Junior Lifeguarding course (formerly known as "GuardStart") is a key component of the Lifeguarding program. It creates a lifeguarding feeder program to help aquatics supervisors recruit the most promising Lifeguarding candidates for future employment. Junior Lifeguarding has a strong focus on developing swimming skills to help participants meet the Lifeguarding course prerequisite. The course also introduces participants to lifesaving skills, such as in-water rescues, use of a rescue tube, and first aid, CPR and AED. Participants also have the opportunity to shadow lifeguards in rotation to get a real sense of being on the job.
