Red Cross Training Courses

For the past 100 years, Red Cross programs helped millions of kids, teens and adults learn how to swim and become lifeguards and instructors. So the water can be a safer place for everyone.

The American Red Cross created the first national water safety program in the U.S. and today its still the gold standard for aquatics training. All of that training is making a difference. In the last century, weve helped to reduce accidental drownings by nearly 90% nationwide.
