Lifeguard Training

 
 

Safety Is Always First

Ace Aquatics’ primary objective for aquatic safety is to provide our clients with the best-trained lifeguards in the industry. Ace’s approach involves the utilization of professional educators who are highly-skilled lifeguard training instructors. These quality instructors participate annually in a comprehensive instructor review program.

Ace Aquatics has partnered with Starfish Aquatics Institute to provide a highly progressive approach to aquatic safety. The teaching methodology emphasizes hands-on practice to integrate lifeguard, CPR and first aid training. Ace lifeguards are annually certified in first aid, CPR for the Professional Rescuer and lifeguard training. The Starguard lifeguard training program requires every Ace lifeguard to participate in annual lifeguard, CPR and first aid training regardless of their level of experience. As a result, Ace’s quality instruction coupled with progressive lifeguard training provides for a premier aquatic safety staff.

Some highlights of Ace Aquatics’ Training Program include:

  • We operate a full-time, year round training facility, certifying over 400 lifeguards each year.

  • We require every lifeguard to complete a certification course every year, a preseason training session, and monthly in-service throughout the summer season.

  • We employ professional educators as lifeguard training instructors.

  • We are sanctioned by the State of Maryland as a pool operator instructional site.

  • Our management team regularly attends national educational seminars.
