E&A Extends Lifeguard and Lifeguard Instructor Credentials due to COVID-19*

March 20, 2020

We are all growing restless and trying to navigate how social distancing will impact our operations once this uncertain time has passed. To help make this period a bit easier for our partner organizations, for those clients who’s training season may be directly impacted by facility closures and government restrictions resulting from COVID-19, E&A will make the following extensions to credential expirations:

For Lifeguard Training Credentials Expiring Between March 1 and May 31

  • Revised Expiration Date: July 1, 2020 for all active lifeguard credentials in this group
  • Recommended Renewal Training Day Scheduling Window: May 1 and July 1 (Schedule at your discretion based upon the evolving situation)

Affected credentials have been automatically revised in Pectora (E&A’s exclusive online learning management system) to reflect this accommodation. If you are a current E&A client, there are no additional steps you need to take right now.

For Lifeguard Instructor Credentials Expiring Between March 1 and May 31

  • To provide additional flexibility for Renewal Instructor Candidates still needing to renew this spring, we will extend license expiration dates to:
     July 1.  Please have your Instructor Candidates maintain contact with the assigned ILTP Instructor Trainer and keep in touch with your E&A contact for the current status of the class.

If you are not an E&A client at this time, please feel free to reach out for free advice on how to streamline your lifeguard recruitment, training and retention. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to assist you.

Be well,

Your E&A Team
