Lifeguarding Course to be Offered at Knox High School

An American Red Cross Lifeguarding Certification course will be taught at Knox High School this summer.

Amy Nimetz will be offering two sessions: June 3-7 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and June 10-14 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those sessions will be conducted at the Knox High School pool.

Each class will train you for dry-land skills, which consist of CPR, Automated External Defribillator training and first aid, plus in-water lifeguarding skills. You must have your swimsuit on the first day of class.

The course is scheduled for five days for eight hours a day, but if you get through the skills quickly, it may be shorted to four days.

If you are 15 years of age or older, you are encouraged to take this class. The cost for students is $45, $60 for 2013 Knox High School graduated seniors and $100 for community members. If you are a community member signing up for the course, a limited criminal background check will be done prior to the start of class.
