Lifeguard Training Courses 

LARPD's Lifeguard Training Course provides the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until EMS personnel take over. Classes will be held at the Robert Livermore Aquatic Center.
