Lifeguard Certification & CPR  Classes

Our family of companies has trained over xyz lifeguards.

Our family of companies trains over 1500 lifeguards each year. Training lifeguards is part of what we love to do. 

We are currently offering 2 courses - Lifeguarding: Full Certification (for new lifeguards) and Lifeguarding Recertification for those who need to renew their current certification. Our lifeguarding classes are American Red Cross authorized.

If you sign up for a class with us and also work for us, you can earn back all but a $50 administration fee by completing your online training before your first shift and working through the end of the summer. 

To be a Lifeguard with Kentuckiana Pool Management, you must also complete the Louisville Metro Health Dept certification process, which includes a water skills test and a written test administered by the Health Department.
