YASA Certification V6: Y Aquatic Safety Assistants

This course presents the knowledge and skills needed to both help prevent and recognize aquatic risks and to assist a lifeguard in the emergency response to an accident and injury. This basic aquatic safety course is highly recommended for fitness instructors and back yard pool owners. Participants will also be certified in American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) courses: CPR BLS, Basic First Aid and Emergency Oxygen Administration upon successful completion of this course.
