Pool Safety/Lifeguard Training

Our pool staff takes your family’s safety seriously, but they cannot do it alone. We remind parents and guardians that children should not be left unattended at the pool. Young children and non-swimmers should be supervised directly—within touching distance—by a responsible adult.

Safety is the number one priority of the Northbrook Park District. All Managers, Lifeguards and Swim Lesson Instructors must be certified by StarGuard or StarFish Swimming before being allowed to guard or teach. Both certifications are through Starfish Aquatics Institute, which has developed a risk management system and competency-based training program used by aquatic facilities around the world.

In addition, several staff members hold CPO (Certified Pool Operator) Licenses or AFO (Aquatic Facility Operator) Licenses. The national certification demonstrates that pool operators have completed the required education and training for proper facility and staff management and signifies our commitment to providing the highest level of service and professional excellence.

The Park District takes the following action to train pool staff and keep them vigilant:

Preseason Training

All Staff: Northbrook Park District Staff Orientation (2 hours)—Covers Risk Management, Personnel and Participant Conduct, and Customer Service

Managers: Lifeguard Skills Training Review (3 hours), Guard Training (24 hours), Facility Reviews (6 hours)

Guards: Guard Certification Training (24 hours for new guards, 20 hours for recertification), Facility Training (3 hours)

Swim Lesson Instructors: Instructor Trainer Certification (16 hours), Instructor Certification Training (8 hours)
