Why should you travel to USA as a lifeguard?

What does being a lifeguard teach you?

Respected profession

First Aid knowledge

An opportunity to discover the culture of the USA

English skill practice

Unforgettable summer

Difference between the pool and beach lifeguard

During the season, 500 lifeguards travelled with us to the USA – 50 of them choose to work on the beach. This shows, how popular the program is among the students of universities. The Pool companies are located on the east cost of the USA.

The pool lifeguard is responsible for the whole swimming pool as well as the contentment of the patrons. Beach lifeguards save lives on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, that’s why they must have outstanding swimming and English skills.

We co-operate with 15 employers, who we know personally, thanks to our long-term relations. Some of the companies are bigger than the others, but there’re no worries about you not being able to choose from our catalog.


Pay for your work

The pay always depends on the employer, general pay per hour is about 9 to 12 USD. Working time is around 40 hours weekly if needed your employer can ask you to work overtime, which is afterwards higher rewarded. (Some of the employers are classified as seasonal, so they might not act on it.)

Job Catalog


Most of the employers provide accommodation from your first day in the USA, at their own premises or arranged apartments. The accommodation at some of the locations (New Jersey, Ocean City, Myrtle Beach) is not provided – students have to find a place on their own with our help and recommendations.

Lifeguard certification, CRP/AED review

To be able to work as a lifeguard, it is necessary to have a valid Lifeguarding, First Aid and CPR/AED certificate. This certificate is valid for 2 years, but employers insist on a yearly CPR/AED retraining.

Some of the employers require pool chemistry knowledge, that’s why we offer a course of a Pool operator to the students. You will obtain this license in the USA right after passing the test – the conditions are different, depending on the location and requirements from the employer.
