Love the Water? Then Get Trained and Jump In!

August is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing: the dreaded end of summer.  While some of us may feel a bit depressed during this time, there’s still plenty of time to catch the waves and soak in the sun at your local beach or pool.  If you love the water, why not learn how to swim safely and help others while having fun!

The Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts is offering aquatics training courses to those who are interested in becoming a lifeguard or water safety instructor.  If you are 15 years of age or older you are eligible to participate in a Lifeguarding course, and if you are 16 years old you can register for the Water Safety Instructor course.  Not only will you learn valuable water safety skills, but you will have the opportunity to help others. Once you complete a course, you become a certified lifeguard or water safety instructor and can apply to work at your community pool or local beach.

Why spend your summer working indoors when you can enjoy the summer sun while keeping beach goers safe.  While we can’t guarantee you’ll be a candidate for Baywatch, we can give you the skills you need to save someone in distress.
