UREC will offer American Red Cross water safety and lifeguard certification courses March 11-15 at the Ben Kelly Center for Human Performance. 
Water safety courses will run from 9 a.m. to noon and lifeguard certification courses are from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. 
Dan Robertson, director of university recreation, is co-coaching the water safety instructor course with Aaron Kentner, university recreation assistant director. 
“Seeing the improvement that participants make throughout the duration of the courses is what I enjoy the most about coaching,” Kentner said.
Different activities that will occur during the course include: swimming, Red Cross learning objectives, water safety, water rescue skills, CPR, AED and first aid.
The courses will test participants’ knowledge of rescue breathing, obstructed airway techniques, CPR for adults, children and infants and the use of an AED.  
Students can sign up for courses by going to Room 112 in the Ben Kelly Center for Human Performance during normal business hours. Students will complete a registration form and provide payment. 
Each class has a registration deadline of 12:00 p.m. on the Monday prior to the class date.
The cost of water safety for ASU students, faculty and staff is $150. The cost for the community is $225. The cost of lifeguard certification for ASU students, faculty and staff is $175. For the community, it is $30.
If a participant has signed up for a class and does not show for the class, they will not receive a refund or be able to sign up for another class. For them to take another class, they must pay again.  
Graduate assistants for aquatics and facilities Carson Collins and Shelbi Waller are co-coaching the lifeguarding course.
