Certification classes

All Ramsey County lifeguards must be certified prior to employment. Parks & Recreation will be offering four, three-day certification courses as an opportunity for applicants who do not hold a current certification. Certification courses are being held in partnership with New Brighton Parks & Recreation.

Course fee is $200. Some scholarships are available; please email Thony Thao for more information. Completion of the course does not guarantee employment with Ramsey County.
