Hello, thank you for visiting UF RecSports Lifeguard Certification! At this time, all RecSports Lifeguard Certification courses are on hold. We will update this page with more information about future scheduling for the Summer and Fall semesters.

This course is designed to recertify those who are currently certified as an American Red Cross Lifeguarding Instructor or Instructor Trainer. The course allows participants to review lifeguarding course content and practice skills in a formal class setting. Successful candidates must demonstrate proficiency in all skills and scenarios throughout the course, participate in all course activities, and successfully complete the instructor course written exam with a score of at least 80%. Participants may “opt-in” to participate in an additional hour of class to recertify their basic level lifeguarding certification – this requires an additional financial cost.

Prerequisites:

  • Possess a current (r. 2017) American Red Cross Lifeguarding Instructor Certification and/or
  • Possess a current (r. 2017) American Red Cross Lifeguarding Instructor Trainer Certification
