Sun & Surf offers an American Red Cross and NSPF blended course available online which allows students to study independently on their own schedule. Instructions on how to access the course (which includes certifications in Lifeguard Training, First Aid, and Professional Rescuer CPR) will be given to each student upon completion of the Pre-Skills class. The water skills portion of the class will follow after the online course work has been completed. A complete schedule will be forwarded to keep all students on track.
