We are excited to offer you American Red Cross Lifeguarding Blended Learning. Blended Learning combines online learning and in-person skills sessions where you will practice skills and demonstrate competency. Please plan to complete all eLearning modules, including the CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuers and First Aid Final eLearning exam, at least two days prior to your first in-person skills session. Most participants complete the eLearning portion of the course in approximately 7 hours. Your experience may vary widely based on several factors including your PC, internet speed and previous training. I recommend beginning the online session as soon as possible to ensure that you are able to complete all eLearning modules prior to the first in-person skill session. All online coursework must be completed before the first day of the Lifeguard Blended Learning class.
