Lifeguards are required to have a current lifeguard certification and a current CPR certification. The lifeguard certification is valid for 3 years and the CPR certification is valid for 1 year. U.S. Pools offers both certification and recertification Lifeguard and CPR courses. While there are many different types of Lifeguard and CPR certification, U.S. Aquatics runs Red Cross Lifeguard courses and American Heart Association CPR recertification courses.

In addition to Lifeguard and CPR training, Pool Operators are required to also obtain a valid certification. U.S. Pools conducts Pool Operators training courses in house as well.
