American Lifeguard ( is a total fraud. They took my money and issued me a bogus lifeguard certification card that was not even good enough for me to work as a lifegaurd. Their lifeguard certification cards are bogus. Their certificaiton cards are useless pieces of paper. I found out that anyone can be a lifeguard instructor for them and then they sell useless pieces of paper as lifeguard certification cards for $25 a piece. Their website pretends that they are some big company with all these lifeguard training locations across the county, but it's just one sneaky little guy pretending. He's selling bulls**t lifeguard certificaiton cards for money! Don't by from this scam artist. He fooled me and took my money. There was not lifeguard training class or lifeguarding course. He just gave me some crappy materials and gave me a cheap and useless certification card that he likely printed off his home computer. I demanded a refund. He won't respond. He responded to my every email when I was buying the bogus lifeguard certification course, but now that I want a refund he won't respond.  USELESS LIFEGUARD CERTIFICATION! TOTAL SCAM!

We are sorry to hear about how this individual feels. We want to state that we offer a satisfaction money-back guarantee, which the candidate only needs to email us, and a full refund will be issued the very same day.

We have currently thousands of active Lifeguards working nationwide that have gone through our training. There are universities, park authorities, beaches, waterparks and community pools utilizing our training programs. Our association adheres to a code of ethics and makes a commitment to deliver high-quality health and safety training to the general public. Our association has been offering training for over 25 years. We are a national educational association that has the full support of both the Swimming Pool and Spa Association and Global Lifeguards, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. These organizations are all members of the Global Lifeguard Association, which make up one of the largest worldwide aquatic consortiums and have certified over 250,000 individuals, and saved countless lives over past quarter of a century.

We emphasize public awareness of governmental and personal responsibility in aquatic environmental issues to protect the world we live in. Our association has worked diligently on environmental issues to help keep our beaches and waterways cleaner for our future generations. Over the years, it has promoted the Think Blue Too movement, which has had a positive impact on the appearance and well being of our aquatic environments. The Association’s opinion and viewpoints have been aired numerous times over the decades, on network shows such as NBC Today Show, Good Morning America, Doctors, and Weather Channel.
