Red Cross Certification Courses 
 
Wilson Aquatics will offer two American Red Cross training courses for both certification and non-certification lifeguards.  The courses offered by the Wilson Aquatic staff will feature certifications in Lifeguarding, CPR, First Aid, AED Training and Blood Borne Pathogen training.  These courses will be offered to Wilson School District residents and non-residents.  All current residents will receive first priority in reserving a spot in any course but are still required to submit full payment within the specified time frame in order to hold a spot in the course.  Due to the nature of these courses, prerequisites may be required of the students prior to participation.  This includes, but is not limited to: age, swimming skill and pre-certification requirements.
