Lifeguard Instructor and Trainer Review Course for Lifeguard Instructors and Lifeguard Instructor Trainers

 

Course Purpose

The purpose of this course of skills practice, skill drills and skill polish is two-fold. 

 

  1. Practice, improve and polish the lifeguarding skills to ensure instructors and instructor trainers can perform the lifeguarding skills as well as be able to recognize correct and incorrect skill performance. 

  2. Ensure the consistency of the Red Cross program skills and knowledge across the instructors and instructor trainers through feedback and evaluation from the practicing Lifeguard Instructor Trainers. Instructor trainers should be able to provide global reminders about each skill set and then conduct practice in a drill format, staggering the participants with all the instructors/instructor trainers participating. Instructor trainers must be in a position to see all participants, provide global and individual feedback, repeating skills as necessary to polish skill performance.

This course is not meant to be conducted as a test but to polish skills and to redirect as needed in order to ensure consistency with the current Red Cross Lifeguarding program. Each candidate must demonstrate as a primary rescuer as well as an assisting rescuer at least once for the multiple-rescuer response scenarios. To be successful, participants should be able to perform skills to the standard by the completion of the practice session. Participants may exit the water using a ladder if necessary.
