What is the cost of our Lifeguard Training and Red Cross Lifeguard Certifications? 

 

The usual cost for lifeguard certifications is anywhere from $200-400, but here at Cooksey's we are invested in our lifeguards. We want everyone to have the same option to become a lifeguard, whether they have money up front or not. This is why if you sign a contract with us to lifeguard for the summer, we pay for the majority of the training and certifications. Cooksey's only charges $40 flat fee. Once you pay the fee you can begin working for Cooksey's as a lifeguard for the summer.

What is lifeguard training?

Want a great summer job with Cooksey's Lifeguard Company Inc. or just want the Red Cross Lifeguard certifications? We take a very hands on approach to learning all the skills you will need to be the best lifeguard you can be. If you successfully complete the acadmey you will receive a 2-year certification in Lifeguarding, first aid, and professional-level CPR and AED in one certificate. 

 

Here are some of the things we go over; patron surveillance, rescue skills, victim assessment, CPR/AED, care for head, neck and spinal injuries. We lead a very vigorous course that includes both physical and mental skills. You will have to swim laps, tow people across the pool, and perform CPR and other skills (as close as possible to the real thing). You must be able to perform all of these tasks successfully in order to be considered for employement. 

 

***If an applicant misses any days, is late, or cannot pass all of the written and practical tests successfully they will be removed from the program and will not be able to recieve a refund. 

 

What would it mean to me to become a lifeguard this summer?

 

Working as a lifeguard is one of the best first jobs you could get as a young adult. Becoming a lifeguard is more than just a minimum wage job at a grocery store. Working as a lifeguard means showing up to a very important job every day. Once you get a job as a lifeguard and take the lifeguard training courses to become lifeguard certified people are depending on you to show up to your shifts. Kids cannot swim safely without you, and parents cannot breathe easy without you. Once you become a lifeguard it is your job to control the pool, it is your job as a lifeguard to make sure that everyone is safe while you are on duty. Being a lifeguard is a very important job for so many reasons. By becoming a lifeguard you are setting higher standards for yourself in any future job you obtain. Why? Because getting a job as a lifeguard is not easy. Getting a job as a lifeguard is not as simple as walking into an interview and telling your interveiwer that you are able to push carts. Becoming a lifeguard is a certification. But not just one certification, multiple certifications through Red Cross. Getting a job as a lifeguard demands intelligence. Getting a job as a lifeguard demands physical work. Getting a job as a lifeguard means you need to learn a lot about Cpr, first aid, and responding to emergencies. If you would like to get a lifeguard job this summer then you are in the right place. Our lifeguard instructors will help you out as much as possible during your lifeguard training so that you can get all the tools you need to pass. Once you pass all of your lifeguard training tests successfully you are able to receive a lifeguard job with Cooksey's Lifeguard and Swim. Becoming a lifeguard this summer will be a great asset to the rest of your life, and an amazing start to your summer.
