Lifeguard Training Courses

Lenny Morcone, Director of the Milford Community School Use Program, has announced that there will be an American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Course at the Milford High School pool for anyone who wants to become a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard. The first class will be held on Wednesday, January 14.
This course is designed to teach lifeguarding skills and provide the knowledge needed to prevent and respond to aquatic emergencies. Participants will be certified in First Aid and Professional Rescuer CPR. The course covers many areas of lifeguarding including equipment rescues, recognizing distressed swimmers and handling active and passive drowning victims.
In order to be enrolled in the course, a person must be 15 years old and be able to pass a water test given on the first night that involves the following:
• Swim 300 yards using at least 100 yards of the Front Crawl and Breast Stroke.
• Start in water, swim 20 yards using crawl or breast stroke, surface dive 7 to 10 feet, retrieve a 10 pound brick, swim back 20 yards with the object, and exit the pool without using the ladder/steps in under 1 minute 40 seconds.
The course is taught on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. starting on January 14. The remaining course dates are January 21, 28, February 4, 11, 25, March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1, and 8. The cost of the course is $275 with $50 due at the first class.
Anyone interested must register in advance by calling the Milford Community Use Program at 508-478-1119. The course will be limited to 25 people. Deadline for registration is January 9.
A Lifeguarding Recertification course is taught in conjunction with the above course. Anyone needing recertification should also register. This course is limited to 10 people and the fee is $150.
