BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Ocean Rescue will host an open tryout for 35 seasonal lifeguards on January 24.
Ocean Rescue had a less than expected turnout January 17, and will hold another tryout for those that could not make the first one.
Those hired on as ocean lifeguards will work from March to October this year.
Those trying out should be at the Rockledge High School swimming pool by 7 a.m.
Candidates will not be permitted to test if they are late.
While no lifeguarding experience is necessary, candidates must be over the age of 16 on the day of the tryout and possess strong swimming skills.
All candidates must bring a valid driver’s license, Social Security card, appropriate swim attire, a towel and running shoes.
Candidates will be required to swim 500 meters in less than 10 minutes, complete a 1-mile run on a track in under 10 minutes and perform a physical agility test that includes push-ups.
Advanced registration is not required, but applicants are reminded that testing will begin promptly and anyone arriving after testing begins will not be permitted to try out.
If selected, completion of the hiring process is dependent on the candidate’s ability to pass a background test and successful completion of Ocean Rescue’s paid training academy.
The starting pay for ocean lifeguards is $9.46 an hour.
