Tukwila Pool offers lifeguard training courses | We’re All In!

Michelle Simpson

We are hiring. Come join our team!

Did you know that if you are a Tukwila resident you may qualify for scholarship assistance and receive our lifeguarding certification class for free?

If you are not a Tukwila resident, we still have a payback program where you can attend the class for free if you work for us.

The Tukwila Pool is very flexible with schedules. Whether you are in school full or part time, or are a stay-at-home parent who just wants to work certain days or hours, we have something for you. We are open year-round, so employment is not considered seasonal.

We have a lot of fun here at the pool and we even offer a lifeguard of the month incentive program.

We are offering a lifeguard certification class this November. This is the American Red Cross certification that includes CPR/AED and first aid.

The class is offered from 4 to 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 4 and 5; and 4 to 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10.

Those interested in taking the class are required to pass a pre-swim test. You must be 15 to take the course and 16 to work at the pool.

Other open positions include swim lessons instructors. We will train you. We teach people age 6 months and up. Come help make a difference and teach a child or adult to swim.

Call the Tukwila Pool at 206-267-2350 for more information or check out our website, tukwilapool.org.
