Lifeguards and lifeguard instructors.

When the online portion has been completed, the student prints or emails me the certificate of completion. I then schedule the practical and pool portion of the course.

You will be certified as a LG for two years. I prefer to do a combined course to produce LG instructors following your LG class. The price for aquatic courses for BSA members will be 50% of what the least expensive course in the area is. This should put the LG course at $100. You will also have to pay the $5 to register with this site.
Scuba classes, sailing, and other classes will be priced in the same for BSA members, 50% of the least expensive course in the area and divemasters, sailing and other leaders paid a portion of the course to raise money for their units.
Scuba – here is the instructor manual
Sailing – basic, advanced, bareboat, coastal, passage making
