Course Information

Massanutten Resort offers a variety of American Red Cross Health and Safety Service Certification Courses. All courses are taught by certified American Red Cross Lifeguard Instructors and in accordance with all American Red Cross policies. Courses offered include:

*All Full Lifeguard Training R.12 Courses are taught with the addition of the WaterPark Skills Module R.12. This will cover all the knowledge and skills that apply to facilities with both flat, static bodies of water, as well as those with fixed or portable water features (i.e. moving water, water slides, wave pool, etc.).

Recertification Courses

All "Recertification Courses" are presented as "Review Courses." This is similar to a "Challenge Course" with the possible addition of video/lecture and practice of the skills before testing. All objectives must be met WITHOUT guidance from the instructor. If you are interested in registering for ANY Recertification Course, understand that several of the American Red Cross Courses have been updated to the latest revision. Please review the instructional manual before attending the course.
