          How to Become A Lifeguard

          Becoming a Lifeguard can be a lucrative and fun experience. You are outdoors the vast majority of the time, you are taught lifesaving skills, and you learn and develop leadership skills in your new position.

          We here at Pro Pool love hiring young, driven individuals and working with them to become the type of employee that we want to come back and work for Pro Pool for many summers.

          After the application process is complete, you will be contacted by your manager to begin pool cleaning and preparation for opening in the summer. If you applied to be a manager or an assistant manager, we will be contacting you for an interview.

          Choose a class that fits your schedule

          Our certification classes have very limited space within them, due to restrictions on Teacher to Student ratios. That means the earlier you sign up, the better the chance that you will get in the class of your choice. Once you sign up, you MUST attend THAT specific class. You cannot sign up for one class and expect to attend a different class. These are very specific. If you do not notify us of a cancellation at least 72 hours prior to the beginning of the class, you will NOT be refunded.
