Safety Certifications

Currently all safety classes are canceled until further notice.

All aquatics certifications are taught by American Red Cross-certified instructors. Please note that participation in a certification class does not guarantee certification. All skills related to the certification must be properly demonstrated (as defined by course outline) in order to receive certification.

Safety courses will be delivered using blended learning and include an online module and an in person skill session. The online module must be completed prior to the skill session. Proof of completion must be brought into the skill session to be shown to the instructor. Proof includes the completion certificate that is awarded at the end of the online modules or the email that is received stating you have completed the online module. Links to the online module are provided via emailed receipt upon purchase/registration of the course. Please contact David Taylor at dmtaylo2@kent.edu with questions/concerns. Because the online module prepares you for the skill session, failure to have proof of completion or to complete the online module will result in the inability to allow you to participate in the skill session and a forfeit of registration fee.
