If you are one of the thousands of people in the Las Vegas and Henderson areas who would like to work at a public or semi-private pool this summer as a lifeguard, you are going to need some certification and some training.  There are hundreds of pools in each city that need lifeguards, both for legal reasons as well as simply caring for the safety of their patrons.  Most community pools are required to have a lifeguard on duty at specific times, including the pools operated by the associations of homeowners within nearly every master plan and community in the valley.  The major hotels with pools are also required to have lifeguards on duty in order to protect their guests.  There are many opportunities for employment in the lifeguarding field year round in our area.  In the summer time, these opportunities increase significantly.  All of these positions are going to have to carry a lifeguard certification that you understand the basic techniques of CPR, shallow water rescue and a variety of other skills.  You are going to need specific training and certifications to work, and we provide those certifications.

Additionally, many employers require several certifications of their employees who work with customers or in jobs that have potential hazards associated with them.  These jobs are going to commonly need a CPR training course and certification, as well as potentially needing other certifications or trainings.  The employers require that their employees get this training so that they understand what to do in case an emergency was to happen within their businesses, and they want the employees to understand what to do until more highly trained paramedics arrive on the scene.  Nearly all employee training will require a CPR course.

Almost every job associated with the medical field is going to require training on the basics of CPR and life saving techniques.  This will include jobs that are not directly assumed as needing these types of training.  For example, most technicians who work with cancer patients in order to provide radiation or chemotherapy will be required to know and be certified in CPR, in addition to their other licensing requirements.  These are simply precautionary measures to train employees of hospitals and small medical clinics on how to handle an emergency situation if one was to happen during their routine day.

Basic life saving skills and techniques should not only be known by those who need it in order to secure a job, and instead should be known and understood by everyone.  Having the skills to revive a person who has fallen into a pool can save a life, and understanding how to keep their blood circulating with oxygen through CPR if an accident was to happen can be the difference between life and death.  Nobody plans for accidents to happen, they happen randomly.  The people who are trained in how to deal with accidents are the ones who will generally be successful at saving a life until the paramedics arrive.  There is no reason for you not to understand these techniques.  Call us today if you need employment certification or are just interested in learning how to be effective if an emergency was to happen.
