Aquatic Certification is a course where students will attain their ARC Lifeguarding Certification, which includes CPR, First Aid, and AED training. Students will learn and apply the necessary skills and knowledge needed to react appropriately in a number of different aquatic emergency situations. The class will consist of both pool and theory sessions, and some homework are to be expected. A field trip to Wild Wadi is a course highlight. A final practical exam must be passed in order to receive full ARC certification, and successful candidates may then be employed as lifeguards at the ASD pool. Students must demonstrate competency in the water in order to enroll. Additional costs of approximately AED 360 will cover the ARC administrative fee.
