Lifeguard Training Review Course
The purpose of a review course is to give individuals the opportunity to review the course content within a formal course setting. The review course format optimizes a participant's ability to successfully complete the knowledge and skills evaluation. The responsibility for preparing for the final written exam is shared by the instructor and the participant. Individuals with a current Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED certificate may participate in a review course.
