Testimonial from Lifeguarding student M.N.
"I took the lifeguarding class last weekend. Orchid our instructor was very professional and nice. Her stories and experiences were very helpful and it was nice to know she had life experience. Orchid stayed on point with the class. We had some video's to watch. Similar to the test that we took prior to the class. I was well prepared by watching the video's The class was at a nice facility in La Canada. Pool time was good and we were able to practice till we felt comfortable with the drill. The pool water temp was comfortable even in the cooler outside temperatures."
