Red Cross Launches New Lifeguard Training Program


The Bahamas Red Cross is proud to announce a new training program launched this week providing the skills and confidence needed to train local people to become certified lifeguards. Taught by industry professionals, the week-long courses are designed to help those who take it stay safe in and around the water and will teach critical rescue techniques and how to deliver critical care like CPR, first aid and AED administration.

The Red Cross has about a dozen students in the first course offerings this month, a week-long class February 15- 19 for Lifeguard Certification. These newly certified lifeguards will then complete an additional week of training to become instructors and be able to
certify more lifeguards in future classes. Those interested in signing up to get certified should fill out this online form or contact Bahamas Red Cross Training Services.
