Before being scheduled to work as a lifeguard, all participants will be expected to pass the Ellis and Associates Lifeguard Certification Course

The certification course takes approximately 24 hours to complete and will be conducted on-site upon participants’ arrival at Wilderness at the Smokies.

The cost of the certification course will be paid for by the employer, but participants will not be paid for the time they spend completing the certification course.

To complete the certification course successfully, participants must be prepared to:

  • Swim a distance of 300 yards (275 meters) using a front crawl freestyle stroke or breaststroke without resting
  • Complete a feet-first surface dive, retrieve a 10 pound (4.5 kilograms) brick from the bottom of a 10 foot deep (3 meters deep) pool, and bring the brick to the surface of the pool
  • Tread water in a pool for 2 minutes without using their arms and without resting

***Participants who do not pass this certification course will not be allowed to work as lifeguards and will be placed in another department.
