Taking the class does not guarantee certification and completing the class does not guarantee employment.  The YMCA of Sequim Lifeguard program is highly competitive and we are looking for respectful, responsible, mature candidates with a good physical skills to join our team. If you are interested in becoming a YMCA certified lifeguard, you may sign up at the YMCA of Sequim at any time. Students must be at least 16 years old by the last day of class.  Students must be able to demonstrate swimming skills by passing a swimming proficiency test prior to starting the class. This is a "blended" format class, consisting of online training, classroom sessions, skills training and pool sessions.  All phases of the class just be passed in order to obtain certification.
