Join the CGC Aquatics staff today! We are running a compact course for Bronze Medallion/Cross and National Lifeguard Service certifications in October.

Bronze Medallion/Cross are the prerequisites for all advanced training programs including National Lifeguard Service certifications. National Lifeguard training builds on the fundamental skills, knowledge, and values taught in the Lifesaving Awards of the Lifesaving Society to develop the practical skills and knowledge required by lifeguards. Recognized as the standard measurement of lifeguard performance in Canada, National Lifeguard education is designed to develop a sound understanding of lifeguarding principles, good judgment, and a mature and responsible attitude towards the role of the lifeguard. The National Lifeguard’s primary role is the prevention of emergency situations, and where this fails, the timely and effective resolution of emergencies.
