So as to not be confusing, the only times to use certification is for the coaches education and, of course, Lifeguard Certification. Can't change that universal standard.
ISCA teaches Lifeguards: Come to ISCA training event and get a Lifeguard Certification from American Red Cross, (or could be, JEM) should you pass.
