How much does lifeguard training cost?

Becoming a lifeguard does require an initial investment of time and money. Certification courses cost anywhere from $150 to $500, and take upwards of 30 hours to complete.

Is being a lifeguard easy?

Lifeguarding is a position of responsibility, which in and of itself makes for valuable life and work experience. It's a portable skill that makes it easy to get a side job pretty much anywhere. You could go stock shelves at the supermarket instead, but I think lifeguarding is way more interesting.
