Lifeguard Training program in March could be a fast track to potential jobs

With Spring Break coming up fast for March, the City of Prince Rupert is sharing word of a Lifeguard training program set for the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre, a program that will provide for some valuable skills training from March 16th to the 23rd.

The training program is designed for those fifteen years and above and costs $506 dollars. Applicants should have had training in Standard First Aid and Bronze Cross sin the past, but it need not be current.

And while there are no guarantees for the future, it does seem that with that level of training the job opportunities will be there for those who find the path it offers of interest.

The City has frequently had to reduce the hours at the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre owing to a lack of trained lifeguards on staff, or scramble to fill spots for planned public swims..

So that 506 dollar investment could pay some pretty quick dividends in the months ahead for those who successfully complete the course.

For more information on the Lifeguard training program contact the Recreation Department at 250-624-6707.
