Lifeguard Training Programs

2016 Lifeguard Training classes begin in March 2016!

The City of Folsom offers 2 different trainings.  If you are planning on working at the Folsom Aquatic Center during the 2016 summer then you will need to enroll in one of the two Ellis Lifeguard training programs offered in the Spring of 2016.  The class serves as an informal interview.  The sooner you get trained the sooner you can be offered a position with the City and establish your summer schedule. 

If you are NOT planning on working at the Folsom Aquatic Center then you should enroll in one of the two American Red Cross Training classes.

Contact Chad Gunter at 355-8319 for more information.  To register for either program call 355-8318 or 355-7285.
