Houston Mobile Lifeguard Training to Your Group with a Pool

Lifeguard Certification

For Groups of 6+ at Your Location

Our Greater Houston Metro On-Site Lifeguard Training serves all of Houston Metro, with personalized training appointments for your schedule. $279 per student, complete.

This Houston Mobile Lifeguard Training certification course is at your chosen pool location, even a back yard home pool.

Host pool requirements to have your class are:

  • The pool is comfortably heated (85 degrees+ preferred), and have a 7 foot or greater deep end. Email us pictures of your suggested pool to be safe.
  • The pool deck or area to serve as a classroom is protected from the elements (sun, rain etc)

This course is intended for good swimmers (easiest if you are at a Swim Team/Water Polo Team level, and avid swimmers). On the next page, review the swim competency pre-test if you are unsure.

Red Cross certs are given within 48 hours by email for each student passing all curriculum points in Lifeguard Training, CPR-Pro, AED and Lifeguard First Aid. Let your instructor know if you need it sooner.  You are considered certified as a lifeguard the moment you pass the final testing.

Cost per student is $244 tuition and materials + $35 Red Cross online text, and certification fee-total: $279.

The total billing has a minimum for the group’s private class. It is based on the same price for up to 8 students, a 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 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 of any company doing mobile lifeguard classes. We’ll match it or beat a price, but we already should be your best value.  We’ve been doing this training 25 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 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.
  • 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 20+ years. We know how to make it fun and effective.

Course Pre-test ability checkoff:

  • Student minimum age is 15 by 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.
