BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Not everyone is cut out to be a lifeguard.
Testing is rigorous and the job is physically demanding and challenging.

The center is at 420 Community College Parkway, just south of the Brevard Community College Campus.
Class dates and times are from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 29, Jan. 31, Feb. 5, Feb. 7, Feb. 12, Feb. 14, Feb. 19, and Feb. 21.
The cost is $160 and must be paid upon successful completion of a skills test.
Class size is limited and pre-registration is recommended.
Interested candidates must be a minimum of age 15, be able to swim 300 yards nonstop (freestyle and breaststroke), swim 20 yards, pick up a 10-pound object and return to the starting point in 1 minute and 40 seconds and tread water with legs only for 2 minutes.
This activity is sponsored by Brevard County Parks and Recreation Department.
