Tests offered for certified lifeguards to work at state parks

Lifeguarding tests for already-certified lifeguards who want to work at DNR State Parks & Reservoirs properties will be held at no cost to the participants at four locations statewide in April and one in May.

Applicants must already be certified in Lifeguarding and CPR for the Professional Rescuer to be eligible to attend the test at any site; the tests are not a recertification of any type. Testing will include blood borne pathogens, a written test and a water test. If you have already worked as a DNR lifeguard, you do not need to take the test for 2013.

The Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs lifeguarding tests will be on:

· April 7, at the Harrison County YMCA in Corydon, 9 a.m. EDT

· April 13, at Norwell Middle School in Ossian, 9 a.m. EDT

· April 14, at Owen County YMCA in Spencer, 9 a.m. EDT

· April 28, at Harrison High School in Lafayette, 10 a.m. EDT

· May 11, at Portage High School's West Pool in Porter, 9 a.m. CDT, 10 a.m. EDT

Registration at all sites starts 30 minutes before the test. Allow five hours for the test.

The week after the tests, each applicant's scores will be sent to the property he or she requests.
