Top 5 Reasons to Become a Lifeguard at UVAC
1. CHALLENGE YOURSELF
As a lifeguard, you can challenge yourself to rise to your potential. To be a lifeguard you must take a lifeguarding course and pass a certification test-it’s not a simple part-time job application. At UVAC, you will consistently use the skills learned in your lifeguard course to participate in training with other lifeguards, thus always ensuring you are rescue-ready.
As a lifeguard, you will have the unique opportunity of knowing you are making a difference in the lives of your patrons every day. You will be present on deck, guarding the pool and patrons for any life-threatening emergencies, but you will also be handing out band aids, fitting lifejackets, and providing patron education. Every interaction makes a difference as a lifeguard.
The skills you learn as a lifeguard, whether they be rescue skills or communication skills will last a lifetime. These skills are transferrable to any job. Although your lifeguard training is complete, and you have the job, the training at UVAC never ends. Guards at UVAC participate in 2 hours per month of training (paid). This training drills down to the minute detail of every skill to make sure that guards are rescue ready at all times.
As a lifeguard, you’re never alone. You will work closely with your teammates on things from mundane cleaning responsibilities to life-threatening emergencies. Spending all of this time with your teammates means you’re bound to make some of the best friends of your life.
Being a lifeguard at UVAC comes with many great benefits. UVAC offers a flexible schedule for lifeguards, a free individual membership to the facility, and paid training opportunities. Join us today!
