WEST PLAINS, Mo.– The Missouri State University-West Plains University/Community Programs (U/CP) Department will host a lifeguard course March 10-12 at the West Plains Civic Center.
The course is part of the Jeff Ellis and Associates International Lifeguard Training Program (ILTP). Candidates must pass a written exam with a score of 80 percent or higher, pass individual technical performance exams and pass simulation practical exams to qualify for licensing.
There is a $115 fee for the course, which covers an online course and test, a completion card and tuition costs. Only 16 students will be accepted.
Missouri State-West Plains Aquatics and Wellness Coordinator Keri Elrod said this is a great opportunity for area residents who may be interested in a summer job at one of the area pools to obtain the required ILTP certification.
