Washington D.C. (DMV) Mobile Lifeguard Training for Your Group

Lifeguard Certification

6+ Students Needed, with Your Own Pool and We Come to You!

DMV Mobile Red Cross Lifeguard Training

We are trusted by Congress to train their club’s lifeguard staff. How about you?

Our DMV Mobile Lifeguard Training done on-site to you serves the DC, Maryland, Virginia metro area out about one hour from DC with no travel fee.  You choose a personalized 2-day training appointment for your facility’s schedule.  One month lead time is best, but sometimes less notice is workable.

This lifeguard certification course is at your chosen commercial pool location including universities, municipalities, health clubs, and camps.

The host pool needs to have these main requirements:

  • It is comfortably heated (82 degrees+ with a warm 85-88 being ideal for our significant water sessions),
  • have a 7 foot or greater deep end,
  • have a suitable area for videos and land practice.

Email us pictures of your suggested pool to be safe. Additionally, since it’s required by law for your normal pool operation, we ask you to provide some basic equipment for your class.  Your facility must have on hand at least 1 spine board with straps for the chest of a victim and head immobilizer and enough rescue tubes for 1 tube for every 2-3 lifeguard students. Our company provides additional water equipment and all CPR, First Aid, and AED equipment. If you need direction on purchasing rescue equipment from good vendors just ask.

This course is intended for good swimmers.  Class is easiest if they are at a Swim Team/Water Polo Team level, and avid swimmers, but being in decent swimming shape enough to pass the water pre-tests below will be needed. 

Red Cross 2 year certifications are given for each student passing the class. The combined certificate reads successful completion in Lifeguard Training, CPR-Pro, AED and Lifeguard First Aid. Certification is considered instant upon passing class, with the hard copy certificate emailed to you often same day but no longer than 48 hours of class.

This is a 2-day intensive course, usually arranged on one full weekend, or on two consecutive weekdays. Arrange days best for you with our advising. 

COST:

For the group, we must set a minimum charge for the DMV Mobile Lifeguard Training. The private lifeguard class fee is based on at least 6 students total of $1,944. If you have a group of less than our minimum 6 and want to proceed with less than 6, it’s ok, we must still charge our minimum base price based on 6 and divide it between participants. At least 4 warm bodies are needed to do the skills.  If we drop lower than that, we must cancel the class and reschedule.  If you don’t have the minimum, and/or you’re willing to allow outside guest students to attend, we can rebate you some of your fees in thanks for allowing outsiders.  Either way is fine, as long as we have or minimum.

Cost per student is $289 tuition and materials + $35 Red Cross online text, certification fee: Total: $324.

Price Guarantee: If you find a lower price, by an insured Red Cross licensed training provider company doing a private LGT class, we’ll match it or beat it.

The benefits of booking us for a 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 top-notch pros with over 20 years experience in lifeguarding. We don’t hire rookie lifeguard instructors: you want your guards trained by the experienced, to be solid guards for you.
  • If you need to reschedule, you can.
  • Our effort is to your individual students passing well, not to move the public group on and not care if several fail.  We go the extra mile
  • Since we’ve been doing LGT’s 25+ years. We know how to make it fun and effective.

Course Swimming Pre-test ability checkoff:

  • Student minimum age is 15 by the final day of class.
  • Swim 300 yards ( example: 12 lengths of a 25-yard pool) either breaststroke and/or freestyle demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing without stopping, not timed.
  • Tread water for 2 minutes using only one’s 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.

We offer our lowest price guarantee for any private class booking. We’ve been doing this training 20 years and have a passion and a track record of making the highest quality privately trained guards in the industry.  Again, when Congress can’t agree on much, at least the’ve agreed to book us as their own health club’s trainers.  Give us a try?

Jenn Tyler, President of the Company, LGI, Lifeguard, Swim Instructor

Company owner with 27 years lifeguard, lifeguard instructor, and swim teaching experience

Living on Kaua’i island, Hawai’i most of the year, and traveling to Australia, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay, and Houston regularly to lead Lifeguard Courses and CPR training, Jenn has been the director of Happy Swimmers for over 25 years. It is a passion to assist in the empowerment of children learning how to swim in a medium once considered a fearful, uncertain place, magically turned into a supportive, fun environment to be explored with friends. The same goes for lifeguarding and training new lifeguards–there is no greater inner joy either in saving someone’s life as a lifeguard, or teaching others how to perform lifesaving skills. It is an honor for me to watch my students grow–where once there was doubt or panic, now there is strength and confidence.

Thank you for looking to become a Happy Swimmer!
