SPECIAL NOTICE: We require all providers to make payment on the very same day of the testing. The $75.00 per student fee is to be made after the last exam is taken for the day. There is no charge for individuals who fail the exam and payment is only needed for students who pass. Regretfully, if payment is not received on the day of the exam, the results will be voided, and there is an additional $75 processing fee for retrieving each exam result in generating the certification.
The American Lifeguard Association is an educational association with the full support from both the Swimming Pool and Spa Association and Global Lifeguards, a nonprofit 501c(3) organization. These organizations are all members of the Global Lifeguard Association, and make up one of the largest global aquatic consortiums. Over the past 25 years, they have certified over 250,000 individuals worldwide. Training programs are offered to the general public at over 3,000 locations in over 120 countries and 900 cities.
Upon completion of each of the certification programs of either the American Lifeguard Association or the Swimming Pool and Spa Association, we require that you enter the student information into our online program and email us the number of students that completed the program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The student information must be entered the very same day of class completion. Once we receive the roster and student fees, we will process the certification cards and ship the waterproof certification cards within 24 hours.
In addition, all credentials will also be uploaded to the Aquatic Industry’s online credential verification service within the next 24 hours. Once it has been uploaded, you will be able to check your listing by clicking this link: Universal Certification. You, an employer, or government official will be able to verify your new certifications anytime in the future.
Please note that delays in turning in the student rosters and paying student fees on the same day may result in a fine, suspension of your designation as an authorized provider.
