But Lifeguarding Online does even more. It enables aquatic facilities worldwide to provide an alternative to traditional lifeguard education, which can save time and money, while providing an engaging training program that focuses on critical decision-making. It also enables lifeguard instructors to devote their attention to the skills and actions lifeguards need to have when faced with emergencies. Built with Flash ™ technology, this program provides rich photography, illustrations, animation, and video, and has already been awarded Macromedia's prestigious "Site of the Day."
Lifeguarding Online includes four modules that represent the knowledge components of the lifeguarding class, and introduce lifeguard candidates to the various skills.
