Tests for lifeguards scheduled

– Lifeguarding tests for already-certified lifeguards who want to work at DNR State Parks & Reservoirs properties will be held at no cost this spring.

Applicants must already be certified in lifeguarding and CPR for the professional rescuer to be eligible to attend the test at any site; the tests are not a recertification of any type. Testing will include blood borne pathogens, a written test and a water test. If you have already worked as a DNR lifeguard, you do not need to take the test for 2013.

The area Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs lifeguarding test will be 9 a.m. April 13 at Norwell Middle School in Ossian.

Registration starts 30 minutes before the test. Allow five hours for the test. The week after the tests, each applicant’s scores will be sent to the property he or she requests.
