Aquatics Training for Adults
 
In the past, a person holding the BSA Lifeguard rating satisfied all aquatic requirements for units which conduct aquatic activities, such as: swimming, canoeing, kayaking, white-water rafting, tubing, etc., at non-BSA sites.  BSA guidelines have changed.  When a unit schedules an aquatic activity without a responsible outfitter, it is now strongly recommended that a person age 21 or older holds a valid Paddle Craft Safety and Swimming and Water Rescue certifications.  This training helps you obtain these certifications. 

Prerequisites and Preparation:

Candidates must have recently completed their Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat online training.  They must bring their completed BSA Medical forms on the day of the course.  Participants must be able to pass the BSA Swim Test.  They must review the BSA Aquatic Supervision Manual.  The details of a download copy accompany registrationThere will be a written test on this material.  There is a sample test in the manual.  Additional information and directions will be provided on registration.

What to bring:

(1)   A bag lunch, which will be a working lunch.

(2)   Swim suit, towel and rashguard.

(3)   Boating clothes and water shoes.

(4)   A change of clothes: you will get wet.
