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.

4/1/20 Update:First and foremost, the safety and well-being of our employees and customers is and will continue to be our first priority. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and staying on top of all the latest developments. We will resume all lifeguard training classes as soon as Governor Murphy deems it safe and lifts the stay-at-home/social distancing rules currently being enforced under Executive Order No. 107.

We have our American Red Cross instructors ready and willing to resume training and we envision a multi-pronged approach to getting everyone certified quickly and ready to work.

We will be reaching out to our staff as well as everyone registered in our classes personally via email and text to give a more in-depth update.

Please feel free to reach out to us directly at: with any questions you may have.

Be well and stay safe.  "Together we can beat COVID-19"
