This day and a half long course, sponsored by Safe Kids Grand Forks and the Altru Family YMCA, will provide both classroom education and in-water training on how to work with special needs individuals in an aquatic environment.

Who qualifies for registration?
Certified Water Safety Instructors, lifeguard or other persons who frequently work with special needs individuals (i.e. physical therapists, paraprofessionals, etc.). The course DOES NOT certify attendees as a lifeguard or Water Safety Instructor. It only provides guidance for working with special needs children in an aquatic setting.
