The Meridian Pool will be offering Lifeguard Certification Courses starting in May 2015. You must e-mail Spencer at firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Space is extremely limited, only 16 students per class and two classes will be offered to ensure we are fully staffed for 2015 (all former employees need to register at a discounted cost).
Information you need to know:
Who-- All previous seasonal employees and future seasonal employees will need to be Lifeguard Certified at the Meridian Pool Facility or be a current Ellis and Associates Certified Lifeguard. All prospective employees must be at least 15/16 years of age at the completion of the program. You must have internet access to complete learning modules prior to pool time. Every prospective lifeguard must be able to swim at least 200 yards with freestyle or breaststroke, tread water without hands for 2 minutes and retrieve a 10lb brick from 12 feet of water. Please ensure you can pass these prerequisites before registering.
RETURNING EMPLOYEES HOLDING A VALID LIFEGUARD CERTIFICATION ARE ABLE TO USE THAT CERTIFICATION UNTIL IT EXPIRES. ONCE EXPIRED THEN THE EMPLOYEE WILL NEED TO BE CERTIFIED THROUGH ELLIS AND ASSOCIATES AT THE MERIDIAN POOL.
Class One: May 1st 3:30pm-10pm AND May 2nd 9am-9pm with a break from 1-1:45pm
Class Two: May 8th 3:30pm-10pm AND May 9th 9am-9pm with a break from 1-1:45pm
Class Three: May 13th 4pm-10pm AND May 14th 4pm-10pm AND May 15th 4pm-10pm
Review Class: May 20th 4-8pm (open to all students who previously enrolled in the class)
Interviews for Prospective Employees: May 21st 2pm-9pm
Class Four: June TBD (open only to confirmed Meridian Pool employees who cannot attend one of the first three classes, everyone on staff for the 2015 season is highly requested to be a certified lifeguard through Ellis and Associates to improve safety at our facility)
.*You must attend all four sessions of the class you register for to become a certified lifeguard*
Cost-- $120 for new students/prospective employees OR $80 for returning employees
We will be making staff decisions based on the classes, not all individuals who become certified at our facility will become Meridian Pool employees, but their certification is good for one year at any other facility that accepts Ellis and Associates. Previous seasonal employees are not guaranteed employment from one season to the next. If you aren't interested in lifeguarding, then we will also be offering CPR and First Aid courses open to the public.
Please e-mail Spencer Meinburg at email@example.com with any questions or to get registered! Looking forward to another incredible summer at the Meridian Pool. :)
