Swim transition pathways for Red Cross-certified individuals

The Lifesaving Society and Canadian Red Cross have created special pathways by which Red Cross certification holders transition to corresponding Lifesaving Society certifications. These pathways recognize and acknowledge the competencies earned in Red Cross certifications while providing the knowledge and resources critical for success as a Lifesaving Society instructor, lifeguard or trainer.

The opportunity to attain Lifesaving Society certifications via these transition pathways, originally scheduled to end December 31, 2022, has been extended to June 30, 2023. As of January 1, 2023, the relevant Lifesaving Society fees apply.
