The City of Powell will be periodically offering American Red Cross Lifeguarding. This certification is necessary to be employed as a Lifeguard at the Powell Aquatic Center. If you are interested, please call to be added to an interest list.

The American Red Cross Lifeguard Training is a professional, state of the art course that leads to certification in Lifeguard Training, First Aid, and CPR for the Professional Rescuer. This course will equip participants with the skills and technical knowledge to become effective members of an aquatic facility team.

Then swim 20 meters using either front crawl or breaststroke, surface dive at least 10 feet, retrieve a 10 pound brick, swim back 20 meters to the starting point with the brick and exit the water without a ladder or steps within 1 minute 40 seconds.
