The Former Lifeguard Training Academy is a one-day orientation for Chicago Park District returning seasonal lifeguards.

All former lifeguards will be required to complete all the components of the orientation (review of Policies and Procedures, Park District written test, and Waterfront Lifeguarding Recertification) before they can be rehired.

Former Lifeguards will be assessed based on the current American Red Cross Waterfront Lifeguard Standards.

Only those applicants who pass the qualifying lifeguard swim test will be admitted to the Former Lifeguard Academy. Registration for the Former Lifeguard Training Academy will be held at the lifeguard swim test.

Candidates must bring a swimsuit and pocket mask and must arrive on time.
