Lifeguard Training HQ


Lifeguard Training HQ has everything you need to make your life easier as you begin your career as a certified lifeguard. State-specific training requirements, potential employers, and job search assistance are just some of the helpful things you’ll find on the site.

Being a lifeguard is incredibly fulfilling. A lifeguard's presence helps people feel safer around a water facility. It also enables people to enjoy their time with protection against an emergency situation. A lifeguard must pass particular examinations and get special certification that qualifies them to protect against hazardous situations around a swimming pool. They also should have the ability to take care of a harmful circumstance by providing emergency treatment until assistance arrives.

Imagine Swimming


Imagine Swimming was founded in 2002 by Casey Barrett and Lars Merseburg, two former world-class swimmers. The school has grown to over 4,000 children each week in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Imagine Swimming believes that the important thing is the singer, not the song—meaning that the presentation of the lesson is everything. Imagine Swimming features highly developed teaching methods and rigorous training, however, it is the teachers—in the moment—who pass it along. This process is collaborative, rooted in play, and requires individual expression with every student, derived from the teachings of Reggio Emilia.

At Imagine, you will not find rigid levels and checklist teaching, but rather lessons that are constantly adapted and structured around the fluid development of every young swimmer. The school strives for 40 active minutes, with a teacher-to-child ratio never more than 1:4.

Please visit the website for more information and a full list of locations.
