    Lifeguard training classes are offered at the Thad Terry Pool at the Northwest YMCA, 7770 N. Shannon Road, and at the Kino Pool at the Mulcahy YMCA, 2805 E. Ajo Way. Classes at the Northwest YMCA are Dec. 15-30, Feb. 16-25 and March 9-21. Classes at the Mulcahy YMCA are April 7-22.

    Swim Lesson Instructor classes will also be offered at the Thad Terry Pool Dec. 16-29 and April 7-14.

    “Lifeguarding is a terrific job, particularly for high school and college students who are off for the summer,” said Grant Bourguet, NRPR recreation program manager. “We’ve arranged our training classes to try and accommodate students who are home for the holidays or on spring break.”

    “We’re hoping a lot of them take advantage of the opportunity to work in a fun, outdoor atmosphere surrounded by lots of fresh air, sunshine and enthusiastic swimmers!”
