The Life Guard
You’ve just landed your first summer job. You love to swim, hang out on the beach. It’s perfect! And while it may be the perfect summer job for you, it is one of the most important jobs you may ever have.
Becoming a lifeguard at a beach or pool carries with it a lot of responsibility. It is exciting and rewarding to be part of a team whose job it is to allow folks to enjoy their summer time in the water, safely.
The training a lifeguard needs to go through is very thorough. The American Red Cross offers many life guard training classes. You will learn how to recognize and prevent injuries, you will learn the rescue skills necessary for both in the water and on the land and you will learn lifesaving first aid and CPR training.
There are Los Angeles CPR Classes available to help you become certified in CPR if you have completed the course but need to be recertified.
Becoming a lifeguard is a very rewarding job and one that will offer you the skills and experience to take with you on any job you will encounter in your life.
