BSA Lifeguard Certification Weekend 2019

Prepare for an intensive weekend course which will take a Scout or adult through the required BSA Lifeguard Certification Credentials. 

Once obtained, the certification will assist the individual in volunteering at the unit level for swims and boating programs, plus can lead to employment positions in both the internal Scouting community and beyond.
