Participants completing this course will be certified in Lifeguard Training, Standard First Aid, CPR for the Professional Rescuer, and AED Training. Call the South Amboy YMCA to reserve your spot, members are $300 and non-Members are $350. If hired by the YMCA, after 6 months of employment 50% of the class will be refunded.

Our goal as instructors is to help students successfully complete their certification goals, students are sometimes not able to adequately complete the stated requirements for the course. Payment of the course fee and participation in class does not guarantee certification; students must successfully complete all course objectives in order to be certified.
