Sweetwater Pools is proud to be a Regional Training Center for Starfish Aquatics. Comprised of a nationwide network of experienced aquatic professionals, the Starfish Aquatics Institute provides programs, training and service.
The StarGuard® course prepares swimming pool, waterpark and restricted waterfront lifeguards in drowning prevention, surveillance and professional skills at levels that exceed common standards.
StarGuard® is an integrated curriculum and includes emergency care skills necessary to protect life or prevent further injury until EMS arrives. The performance objectives of the American Safety & Health Institute CPR, First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens and (optionally) Emergency Oxygen and Automated External Defibrillation (AED) are built into the course. The integration reduces training time and results in a more confident, competent lifeguard.
The American Safety & Health Institute in partnership with Starfish Aquatics uses a systematic, thorough planning process to assure that program materials reflect the most current knowledge available. Ongoing research with a national peer review ensures up-to-date information and programs that have sound educational formats.
