Dallas (DFW) Metroplex Lifeguard Training Mobile for Groups with a Pool

Lifeguard Certification

Our Mobile Lifeguard Training DFW serves all of the metroplex with a personalized 2-day training appointment to your schedule. $274 per student, complete.

This lifeguard certification course is at your chosen pool location, even a backyard home pool. We need it comfortably heated (85 degrees+ preferred), and have a 7 foot or greater deep end. Email us pictures of your suggested pool to be safe.

This course is intended for good swimmers (easiest if you are at a Swim Team/Water Polo Team level, and avid swimmers). Below, review the “Course Pre-test Ability Checkoff” if you are unsure.

Red Cross certifications are given for each student passing all curriculum points in Lifeguard Training, CPR-Pro, AED and Lifeguard First Aid.

This is a 2-day intensive course.  It’s usually arranged on one full weekend. You are free to arrange weekdays as well.  Most groups though opt for the weekend.


Cost per student is $239 tuition and CPR materials + $35 Red Cross online text and certification fee for a total of $274.

There is a minimum for the group’s private classes based on the same price for up to 8 students total of $2,232. If you have a group of less than our minimum 8 and want to proceed with less than 8, it’s ok.  We must still charge our minimum base price based on 8 and divide it between participants. At least 5 warm bodies are needed to do the skills. Another option if you have less than 8, is to agree to host a few kids from our walk-on list to at least make your minimum. The walk-on students have always been good guests of any host we’ve had.

We offer our lowest price guarantee for any private lifeguard class booking. If you find a lower price, by an insured Red Cross authorized company doing a Mobile Lifeguard Training DFW class, we’ll match it or beat it. We’ve been doing this training 27 years and have a passion and a track record of making the highest quality privately trained guards in the industry.

The benefits of booking us for a Mobile Lifeguard Training DFW private class over a Park and Rec class?

  • You choose the dates and times that work for your group, not on someone else’s schedule
  • It’s YOUR group, at YOUR location
  • Class size is limited, better quality and done quicker.
  • Your staff instructors are highly experienced pros.
  • If you have to reschedule, you can.
  • Our effort is to the individual, not to move the group on and let a few fail.
  • We’ve been doing LGT’s 25+ years. We know how to make it fun and effective.

Course Pre-test ability checkoff:

  • Student minimum age is 15 by the final day of class.
  • Swim 300 yards (12 lengths of a 25-yard pool) demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing without stopping, not timed.
  • Tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs
  • A timed weight-retrieval drill (the Brick) where you swim 20 yards, do a surface dive to a 10-pound weight in 7-10 feet deep water, surface and swim on your back with the object 20 yards, exit the water without using a ladder or steps. The time limit is 1 minute and 40 seconds. This is an easy time interval for the normal swimmer.

5 years experience! General areas served: Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake, Dallas (Willing to do any DFW jobs)

Hey guys my name is Drew and I’m currently studying genetics at the University of Georgia. I’ve been a lifeguard for 5 years now! I lifeguarded at Pleasant Glade Pool in Grapevine, TX for 4 years and last summer I worked for Happy Swimmers USA in addition to shadowing doctors and taking summer classes. I love lifeguarding events because it’s rewarding to know that I’m providing a safe and fun family environment for our clients. In lifeguarding I believe that it’s extremely important to be alert and take care of minor issues before they ever become serious.

Drew is also a Lifeguard Instructor in the DFW area.

I have lifeguarded at an aquatic center for one year and have absolutely enjoyed it. I intend to lifeguard because I love children and am happy to ensure their safety.

I serve the Dallas-Fort Worth communities of Dallas, Plano, Arlington, Irving, among others
