Safety Training Courses

The Thoreau Club is proud to partner with the American Red Cross as a Recognized Top Training Provider. Safety Training programs at The Thoreau Club are designed not only help you stay safe but give you the skills to help others in a life-threatening emergency.

Since its founding by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross has been dedicated to serving people in need. Today it remains the gold standard and the most universally recognized brand of safety training. For the past 100 years, the American Red Cross has offered programs that help millions of kids, teens, and adults to:

  • Learn how to teach others to swim through our Water Safety Instructor course

  • Learn how to keep others safe while swimming through our Lifeguard Training course

  • Learn how to provide lifesaving CPR, AED, and First Aid care through our CPR/AED and Lifeguard Training courses

Upon successful completion, students will receive their American Red Cross certification through our sanctioned Training Center.
