Lifeguard class coming to WMCC


The Weirton Millsop Community Center (WMCC) will be hosting a lifeguard training course beginning April 11 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Weirton Room at the community center.


The course instructor will be Jason Williamson, a Weirton resident and veteran lifeguard of the Board of Parks and Recreation.


During the course swimming test, prospective lifeguards must swim 500 yards (equivalent to 10 full laps in WMCC pool), untimed. Prospective guards must be strong swimmers. Swimming will not be taught as participants must know their swimming strokes.


The class will be completed in 20 hours. A course agenda will be handed out on the first day of class.


The cost of the class is $200.00. The fee includes all instructor and swimming pool fees, training materials, and a CPR mask. Students who successfully complete training and are hired by the Weirton Board of Parks will also receive a lifeguard suit and first aid pack at no additional charge.


Class size is limited to 10 students, so preference will be given to the first 10 paid students.


To register for the class, visit the Weirton Millsop Community Center, 3420 Main Street, Weirton, WV. Payments with cash, check, money order, or credit card will be accepted. No registrations will be accepted by phone, mail, or e-mail.
