USLA Certification

Consistent, high quality training of lifeguards and other open water rescuers is essential to ensuring that loss of life is minimized. The United States Lifesaving Association and the California Surf Lifesaving Association has promulgated training procedures and guidelines for decades.

Certification Process
An agency who has not been certified or who has lapsed or been denied for cause, must submit an application, with the associated fee. A Regional Certification Officer reviews the application and makes a visitation to see first hand the agency's operation. The regional officer reviews the application with the applicant officer of the agency to be sure the forms are complete and that USLA guidelines are met, then makes recommendations to the National Committee at the next USLA Board Meeting.
