Lifeguard Training Programs
Registration is now available for our 2015 lifeguard training classes.
The City of Folsom offers 2 different trainings. If you are planning on working at the Folsom Aquatic Center this summer then you will need to enroll in one of the two Ellis Lifeguard training programs below. 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.
