Applicants will also be required to:

Applicants without current lifeguard certification or not currently working as lifeguards must take a performance test for qualifying purposes only. For applicants who possess a National Pool and Water Park Lifeguard Certification or a Lifeguard Certification issued by Jeff Ellis and Associates, the performance test will be waived. The County may train applicants who do not already have a Jeff Ellis and Associates Lifeguard license prior to employment in this job class. Such individuals will be required to remit payment to the County for expenses for this training.
