ILTP® Training Centers
Becoming an ILTP® Training Center entitles aquatic facility Owner/Operators to have select members of their team participate in official ILTP® Lifeguard Instructor training courses. These courses provide the critical Lifeguard Instructor training and mandatory Licensing necessary for them to then be able to conduct their own authorized ILTP® Lifeguard courses and/or E&A Safety & Health courses, on-site and as needed, and without participation in the risk management services mentioned above; affording Owners/Operators the ability to integrate ILTP® trained Lifeguards into their facilities existing operational practices.
