Lifeguards

Our lifeguards are our greatest assets.

Because we service so many pools throughout the Eastern United States, CPI is capable of providing an enriching experience where our smart young professionals can interact with people from all walks of life. From the cities to the suburbs, employees are placed in positions of responsibility, in which they can make a difference by providing a high level of service for guests that deserve a safe place to swim. Our lifeguards serve as role models for the youth in our communities.

CPI lifeguards undergo certification and re-certification each year that stresses the importance of safety and accident prevention. They are trained in all aspects of water rescue, first aid, and emergency management. In order to ensure well-educated and well-rounded lifeguards at our facilities each lifeguard receives training in basic leadership as well. We are constantly reinforcing training throughout the summer too.

All Continental Pools employees, at every level, pride themselves on customer service. Communication and problem resolution is a key focus, and everyone is involved in the process. This creates a sense of unity and team spirit that is clearly visible whenever customers need us. These are just a few of the things that make Continental Pools a special place to work.

Lifeguard Training

If you would like to join CPI as a lifeguard, please read about our requirements, procedures and philosophies below.

Training

Our lifeguard training services are offered to candidates who are interested in working for Continental Pools for the summer. Each candidate who successfully completes the course will receive an Ellis and Associates Lifeguard license along with the basic supplies that are necessary and required of all Continental Pools lifeguards. These supplies will include a whistle with a lanyard, CPR mask, gloves and lifeguard hip pack. Lifeguards will also receive a lifeguard training textbook that they may reference at any time. We require our guard staff to be in uniform while on duty so the purchase of a uniform will be necessary. Contact our recruiting team to receive more information about the related fees.

What Makes Our Program Unique?

Realistic scenarios and simulations make the difference in our program. We believe that lifeguard rescue skills are best learned in the water under the watchful eye of our in house E&A instructors. Students work with mannequins to gain understanding of the dynamics of the human body. However, once students gain competency in basic skills, they apply them to real-life simulated incidents. We teach based on realistic scenarios with real people role-playing as victims.

"Make it Work" philosophy:

Our curriculum and philosophy stress that "textbook-perfect" rescues seldom occur in real life. What is more important is for lifeguards to problem-solve to overcome adverse situations that might arise during a rescue effort. We are the only company in the Mid Atlantic Area that requires every lifeguard to complete our Lifeguard Training Program each and every year. Our program provides training that exceeds conventional standards.
