Get in on lifeguard trainings & hiring fairs
We have new opportunities for those who wish to become lifeguards at JBLM pools:
•  To become a lifeguard student, you must be age 15 or older. Call 253-967-5390 to schedule an in-water pretest at least two days prior to the first day of class. The pretest consists of a 300-meter front crawl or breaststroke swim, two-minute tread using legs only and a timed brick retrieval.
   Classes will be held Fridays, 5–10 p.m., Saturdays, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. and Sundays, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Oct 15–17, Nov. 12–14 and Dec. 10–12.
   Upon successful completion of the pretest, the instructor will email you the blended learning online content and directions to make your $100 class payment. The payment includes training, pocket mask and certification. You must complete an online course (approximately seven hours) prior to the first day of class. Expect a physically strenuous class with skills work both in and out of the water.
•  Lifeguard hiring fairs will take place at Soldiers Field House the Friday following the completion of a lifeguard training course (Oct. 22, Nov. 19 and Dec. 17, 3-5 p.m.). If you wish to be hired, expect to complete an application on site, as well as an interview. You may receive a tentative job offer on the same day.
•  Those who complete JBLM lifeguard training and get hired will receive a $200 incentive bonus after working 100 hours at JBLM.
