DEC lifeguard test March 10

T he New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is offering free lifeguard tests in the Adirondack region.

 

Tests will be given to individuals 16 and older interested in lifeguard jobs at DEC facilities this summer and will be offered through June 8, 2013.

 

Only candidates who pass the examination will be considered for employment.  Testing includes an in-water demonstration of lifesaving techniques and performance of the Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) single rescuer procedure.  Candidates will be evaluated on a pass or fail basis.  The exam may be taken at the DEC testing location most convenient to the applicant, and the results will be forwarded to the preferred work location.

 

At the time of employment, all DEC lifeguards must be at least 16 years old; possess a valid American Red Cross (or equivalent) certification in Waterfront Lifeguarding, and CPR for the Professional Rescuer and First Aid if not included in the Lifeguard Training Course; have successfully completed the New York State DEC lifeguard exam; have attended one of the DEC lifeguard orientations; completed a personal interview with DEC; and submitted a current certification of the applicant’s physical ability to perform lifeguard duties

 

Exam locations will open one hour prior to exam start time for candidates to become familiar with the pool and testing equipment.  Exams will begin on time and late arrivals will not be accepted. Candidates must bring their own CPR mask.

 

Local exams will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 10, at Glens Falls High School and 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, at Queensbury Elementary School.
