Terms and Conditions

Health and Safety Training and aquatics

A&M Aquatic offers Lifeguard training through a process called Blended Learning through the American Red Cross Learning Center. Blended Learning is a training method where students benefit from both onsite training in the classroom and in the water along with online course work. This reduces the amount of time students have to spend in the classroom, allows the students to work at their own pace online, and allows for more time for skill work in the water. Students will gain access to the online course work once they have successfully completed the Skills pretest at the beginning of each class.
