Red Cross implements water safety curriculumThe American Red Cross recently updated its American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program.
Highlights of the changes are improvements to teaching methods, improvements for water safety instructors and participants, and improvements in water safety education.
All water safety instructors must complete one of the following update options:
- Complete an online update at the www.instructorscorner.org and submit a verification form to the local Red Cross Chapter.
- Attend a Red Cross group orientation meeting.
The Minn-Kota Chapter will host orientation meetings from 9 to 11 a.m. April 25 and from 7 to 9 p.m. May 12.
The meetings are free, but the water safety instructor kit is required and will be available for sale at the meeting for $51.95.
