Lifeguarding Certification at the Heartland Regional Aquatics Center
American Red Cross Lifeguard certification courses are conducted at The HUB Recreation Center on a year round basis. This certification permits one to be employed as a lifeguard across the nation at indoor and outdoor aquatic centers, as well as many waterfront and waterpark venues. Courses offered include Lifeguarding, Lifeguarding Review (re-certification of currently certified lifeguards), and Waterpark Lifeguarding. Students must be at least 15 years of age before the last scheduled class session and successfully complete the *Pre-Course Skills Session to begin the course.
