Aquatics Certification

Courses for Aquatics Certification, in the fall at the Nepean Sportsplex

This program is designed to fast-track candidates through the Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross material and examinations in a significantly reduced timeframe. This crash-course format is recommended for swimmers with strong swimming ability who wish to progress to the Lifesaving Society National Lifeguard (NL) program. Due to the condensed nature of the program, Standard First Aid and CPR-C is required prior to the course start date (the Lifesaving Society has posted a list of agencies on their website which are approved for the SFA prerequisite certification.)
