Basic Water Rescue
The American Red Cross Basic Water Rescue course will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent, recognize and respond to many types of aquatic emergencies.
This course also prepares individuals for aquatic emergencies by teaching them how to protect themselves while assisting others. The Basic Water Rescue course does not provide participants with all the knowledge and skills needed to be certified as a lifeguard. For information on lifeguard training, refer course participants.
There are no prerequisites to be eligible for the Basic Water Rescue course. However, because there is an in-water skills session, it is recommended that participants are comfortable in chest deep water.
This course is designed to be taught in approximately 4 hours. This includes time skills practice and the final written exam.
