City to Offer Free Lifeguard Training

City Hall: Newark Offers Lifeguard Training to City Residents
Sounds like a great opportunity for kids who are looking for a summer job. While employment isn’t guaranteed, this class could certainly help kids who might like to work at a recreation center, public pool, or camp.

Mayor Cory A. Booker and Director of Neighborhood and Recreational Services Melvin Waldrop announced today that the City of Newark is offering a two-week Lifeguard Training class, beginning on February 23, 2009, continuing through March 7, 2009, at the John F. Kennedy Aquatic Center, for Newark residents.

While the class itself is free, students must pay $50 for the manual, American Red Cross lifeguard certification card, and CPR Face Shield. The $50 is due on the first day of class. The classes will take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for two weeks. The minimum age to take the class is 16.
