Houston Lifeguard Training Mobile to Your Group with a Pool

Lifeguard Certification

For Groups of 6+ at Your Location

Houston Lifeguard Training serving all of Houston and surrounding areas. This lifeguard certification course is at your chosen pool location. Red Cross requirements state it must be a large pool (at least 25 yards long) and have ample spacing on the deck. On the other hand, it can be any depth. The depth does however, dictate which certification participants are eligible for (shallow or deep). 

Please email us pictures of your suggested pool if you are unsure whether or not it fits the criteria. 

The Houston lifeguard training course is intended for good swimmers only. On the next page, review the swim competency pre-test if you are unsure.

Red Cross certifications are given for each student passing all curriculum points in Lifeguard Training which includes first aid, CPR, and of course, AED.

This is a 3-day course, usually arranged in 3 consecutive days. You are able to arrange the days and times however they work best for your lifeguard participants. 

Houston Lifeguard Training has a minimum for your group’s private classes.  At least 5 participants are needed to do the skills. This is a Red Cross requirement. The maximum we can have in one class with one Lifeguard Instructor is 10. Another option, if you have less than 6, 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. This just means that we post the course on Red Cross to the open public.

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, this means it is not on someone else’s schedule
  • It’s YOUR group, at YOUR location, this is the best for your Emergency Action Plan and the safety of your swimmers!!
  • Class size is limited, therefore better quality and done quicker.
  • Your staff instructors are top notch pros.
  • Our effort is to the individual, not to move the group on and let a few fail.
  • On top of all this, we’ve been doing lifeguard trainings 20+ years. We know how to make it fun and effective.
