The best wayto become lifeguard
We're here to offer a format that's right for you
Aquado is the first Quebec company to has adapted the recognized Lifesaving Society trainings in order to offer them to small groups of friends, according to schedules chosen by the candidates, in their own backyard swimming pool.
We offer an adapted format to children and teenagers aged 8 to 16 years old, in order to allow them to learn in a more familiar and more comfortable environment, and to progress faster. Aquado offers all the official trainings that allow teenagers to have a rewarding job as a lifeguard, at Aquado or at their municipal pool.
Taking your trainingat home
Our lifesaving instructors can teach all recognized awards in the comfort of your backyard.
Our at-home lifeguarding trainings allow:
- A privileged relationship with your lifesaving instructor

Can I register for a course on my own?
What equipment should we buy?
Your lifeguard instructor will provide all candidates with the necessary equipment including manuals, gloves and first aid supplies. However, each candidate must have its own surgical mask and swimming equipment (swimsuit and towel).
How many candidates can be trained?
You can have as many applicants as you want if you meet the minimum number required. The minimum number of candidates depends on the course chosen, but varies between 3 and 4. Visit our Fees page for more details.
Why are the training times not the same as on the Lifesaving Society's website?
Another Aquado advantage! Since we offer training to small groups (usually between 4 and 6 candidates) – compared to the usual training sessions that can accommodate up to 20 candidates – Aquado can offer a reduced training time.
