American Red Cross Certification Classes
Ages 15+ (Age restrictions for all American Red Cross programs will be strictly enforced).
Due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, registration for summer aquatics programs is postponed. This includes swim lessons and lifeguard courses. Pool pass sales will also be postponed.
The rescheduled date has not yet been determined, but will be announced on our website and social media as soon as it is decided.
Recreation Center Programs must meet minimum participant requirements 3 days prior to start date of the course. Courses not meeting minimum requirements will be cancelled.
Spring/Summer Swim Lessons: Please complete and turn in an Aquatics Registration Spring/Summer 2020 form at the time of registration (required for minors to be registered in any Aquatics or American Red Cross course.)
Refunds will only be given if notice is received 7 or more days prior to the start of course. No refund will be given with less than 7 days’ notice. Because of staffing requirements, fee will not be prorated for partial attendance.
Training people on how to respond to and prepare for emergencies is the core mission of the American Red Cross.
Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED and First Aid Certification
These certification classes teach new skills and keep you knowledgeable and ready to respond in almost any emergency situation. American Red Cross certification is a way of demonstrating that you are prepared for a wide range of emergencies in any aspect of your life.
Candidates must pass practical and/or written examination to receive certification.
Completing the lifeguarding course and gaining a valid certification does not guarantee employment with the City of Georgetown. Aquatics staff are hired through the City of Georgetown’s online application process. Please visit georgetown.org/jobs to view open positions and apply.
