This course follows the strict guidelines of the American Red Cross. Our instructors are required to follow these guidelines at all times. Participation in this class does not guarantee certification. This class is taught as a blended learning course, in which the participant completes part of the course prior to attending the first day of class. A link to the online portion of the class is emailed one week prior to class and the estimated completion time is 7 hours. Proof of completion of the online course must be turned in to Kate Futty (kfutty@dublin. no later than the first day of class. Refund Policy: A cancellation request form must be submitted to the front desk of the DCRC at least 7 business days prior to the first day of the class, for a refund of fees paid minus a $15 administrative fee. No refunds will be processed after this time. Prerequisite Test: To be eligible to participate in the Lifeguarding course, each participant will be confirmed or tested on the following prerequisite items the first day of class: 1. Be the minimum age of 15 years old by the final day of class (proof of age must be brought to the first class). 2. Swim 300 yards continuously, using these strokes in the following order: 100 yards front crawl, using rhythmic breathing and a stabilizing, propellant kick. 100 yards breaststroke using a pull, breathe, kick sequence. 100 yards front crawl and/or breaststroke (the last 100 hundred yards may be a combination of front crawl and breast stroke). Note: There is no time requirement for this swim. Each participant must show only that he or she can swim the entire 300 yards using the above strokes without stopping (the participant may use goggles for this part of the test ONLY). 3. Starting in the water, swim 20 yards using front crawl or breaststroke, surface-dive to a depth of 7-10 feet, retrieve a 10-pound object, and return to the starting point with the object and exit the water without using a ladder or steps. This specific test must be completed in its entirety within in 1 minute and 40 seconds. Note: When returning to the starting point, each participant must be able to hold the 10-pound object with both hands, placing it on his or her chest, and keeping his or her face above water. Each participant must exit the water using his or her own strength (participants may NOT use goggles during this skill). 4. Tread water using only your legs for two minutes. Candidates should place their hands under their armpits. Participants must pass the entire prerequisite test in order to continue the course. Failure to pass the prerequisite test and/or complete the on-line course supplement results in forfeiture of class fees or a one-time transfer to a future City of Dublin Lifeguarding course. Once a participant passes the prerequisite test, no refunds or transfers will be processed.
