Certifications

Taught By Experienced Lifeguards.

Wake Aquatic Partners is a proud provider of the American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification curriculum. Become a Certified Lifeguard and work with us at Wake Aquatic Partners for the summer! Or, take your new water safety and life-saving skills with you into future endeavors.

Offered in the spring and early summer, the lifeguard certification provides participants 15 years of age and older with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize, and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries, and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. 

Participants must attend all of the scheduled class dates and times in order to complete the course and be certified as a lifeguard. If a participant misses any part of the course they will not be certified. No exceptions. Successful completion of the course results in a 2-year certification in lifeguarding, first aid, CPR for the professional rescuer, and AED.
