The lifeguard conducting the swim test will determine if the child attempting the skills can perform them to an adequate standard.

Aquafit is one of our group fitness classes

Leave the running shoes behind and join the growing numbers in the pool for a terrific cardiovascular workout that provides less stress on the joints while firming muscles thanks to water's natural resistance (deep and shallow water classes offered). AquaFit is suitable for participants of all ages. No swimming skills required.

Lifeguard Certification Courses

During the year, Dalplex offers National Lifeguard certification courses to our comminity. 

National Lifeguard - Pool certification

The National Lifeguard - Pool certification is a legal certificate for lifeguarding recognized throughout Canada. This course builds on teaching related to water rescue and first aid response skills from prerequisite courses. Candidates are educated on how to prevent emergency situations from occuring in and out of the water, as well as how to use their skills optimally when emergencies do occur. To pass the course, candidates must pass both the physical skill component and effectively respond to instructor-examined situations components (simulated emergency scenarios).
Length: 60-hour course (examination may require additional time)
Prerequisites: 15 years of age, completed Bronze Cross certification (does not need to be current), Intermediate First Air & CPR-C certification (does not need to be current)

National Lifeguard - Pool Re-certification

The National Lifeguard - Pool certification is a legal certificate for lifeguarding recognized throughout Canada. To remain certified, National Lifeguards must successfully complete a recertification exam every two years. During the recertification, guards have an opportunity to practice and be tested on lifeguarding skills and situations related to a pool environment by a NLS instructor/examiner. Recertifications can take up to 4 hours depending on how many participants enroll. Please bring a towel, bathing suit and whistle.
Prerequisites: Must have previously completed the full NLS Pool certification course. If NLS Pool certification is expired, you must complete recertification within two years of expiry.
