NorCal Lifeguard Training (NorCal LGT) is an American Red Cross authorized provider. The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Course is to provide entry-level or advanced lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies. Participants also learn how to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel can take over.

NorCal LGT serves the following Northern California metro areas: San Francisco Bay Area, Peninsula, South Bay, North Bay, East Bay, Santa Cruz, and Sacramento.

We offer an intensive 2-day course for initial certifications and a 1-day review course for re-certifications. Classes are typically held over one weekend or on two consecutive Saturdays or Sundays, but flexible scheduling is also available. Our courses are conducted at pools provided by our clients, including recreation centers, country clubs, and private residence/back-yard home pools. Simply choose the dates and times that work for your group!

Classes are led by experienced and knowledgeable instructors. Class size is limited which allows for a low student-teacher ratio, high-quality instruction, and course completion in a timely manner.

An added benefit – Lifeguarding Jobs!
Employers and aquatic companies/organizations contact us frequently throughout the year looking to hire lifeguards. We post all these possible employment opportunities to our private social media web site, which is accessible only to students/their families upon completion of one of our courses. We can also try to recommend a few locations where lifeguards can make inquires regarding possible employment opportunities.
