BANGOR, Maine — Bangor YMCA is offering lifeguarding courses March 14-16, and April

25-27. Individuals must be at least 15 years old and those who pass the course will receive a 2-year American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification as well as a First Aid and 2-year CPR/AED Certification.

The Bangor YMCA’s Wilderness First Aid course is the only one of its kind in Bangor, geared toward those needing the special tools and knowledge to become trip leaders, outdoor guides, camp staff, and outdoor enthusiasts. This hands-on, 16-hour course, taught by Adventure Recreation Director and nationally registered EMT-B and Maine Guide Jeremy Robichaud, is designed to help prepare participants for the unexpected when venturing into Maine’s great outdoors.

The Wilderness First Aid course is offered on March 29-30, and covers topics that range from

preparation and prevention to assessment and treatment of the most common medical emergencies seen

while in the wild. Registration ends March 19. Individuals must be at least 16 years old and those who

pass this course will receive a 2-year certification through SOLO Wilderness Medical School, the industry
