The North Region will be having its first Lifeguarding Test on Friday December 27, 2013 at 1:00PM at UMass Lowell.
If you plan to attend this test, please bring all original and current certifications, two forms of ID (license and a passport are the best forms), bathingsuit, goggles, towel, etc.
As returning lifeguards, you all know that CPR is only good for one year; and must run through Labor Day of 2014 if you plan to work with us next summer. You must possess a valid American Red Cross for the Professional Rescuer Certification, or a valid American Heart Association for the Healthcare Provider certification. If you do not possess a current and valid CPR card that runs through Labor Day of 2014, then you will need recertification.
If you have any questions please call Christina Doctoroff @ 617-233-2268 or email DCR.AquaticsUnit@massmail.state.ma.us.
Please check your other certifications to see if you need to get recertifications this year. This reminder email gives you plenty of notice and opportunity to get recertified before the beginning of the 2014 season.
You will not be placed in a position until we have seen all original and valid certifications and possess a copy of them front and back, accompanying your passing written and swim test scores.
If you are under 18, We have attached the consent form for you to bring along to the test, signed by a parent or guardian.
