Above is Todd executing a flawless front escape from an active drowning victim and readjusting to come back for a front active victim rescue.
The beginning of the week consisted of learning about the legal considerations and responsibilities of becoming a lifeguard, followed by our pre-course physical tests (300 yard swim, 25 yard "brick retrieval," and treading water for 2 mins without using their hands).
|Watching the Videos -- We spent a lot of time in the classroom.|
Tuesday was spent learning the actual skills and rescues in the water.
|Taking the Final Written Exam|
|In transition between learning skills.|
|Jeff's favorit part of the course was the pink polka-dotted ball.|
|Mike performing CPR while Todd sets up|
the AED. Both were very fast and efficient.
|The group performing primary assessments and CPR.|
|Everyone right before their final skill session.|
