Take the Pre-Test for Lifeguard Certification in Las Vegas

The YMCA’s Las Vegas lifeguard certification and CPR training course begins in the spring of 2015, so plan ahead if you want to be a candidate for this important job.

The Y offers a pre-test for those who wish to enroll in our Las Vegas lifeguard certification course. It’s a sampling of what you can expect when you enroll in our full-blown training program, which teaches skills that are required to quickly respond to aquatic emergencies and prevent drownings.

Among those skills: rescue procedures, First Aid, assessing injuries, and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.

If you are a decent swimmer and believe you have what it takes to become a lifeguard, show up on a Tuesday, before a scheduled class, at 7 p.m. at the SkyView YMCA location at 2050 E. Centennial Parkway in North Las Vegas for the pre-test.

What Our Certification Pre-Test Entails

Here’s what you must do to pass the YMCA’s lifeguard certification pre-test:

  • Swim 300 yards using the front crawl, breaststroke, or both.
  • Retrieve a 10-pound brick from a depth of eight feet.
  • Swim 20 yards on your back, using just your legs.
  • Tread water for two minutes, again using just your legs.

You have to be at least 15 years old to enroll in our Las Vegas lifeguard certification class. If you are under 18 and want to take the pre-test, a parent or guardian should accompany you.

The Y’s certification course fills up quickly, so don’t wait too long to take the pre-test and sign up. Cost is $165 for YMCA members, $210 for non-members. An additional $20 will be charged if you don’t own a CPR mask

Las Vegas lifeguard certification and CPR training opens up opportunities for employment throughout the city, including at the YMCA. After you have passed the course, submit an application at any of our four locations.
