The Monterey Junior Lifeguard Program is taught by certified California State Parks Lifeguards.

PWC Training Asilomar Beach 2014
Each Lifeguard is a professional who has undergone extensive and rigorous training in:
*Surf and Ocean Rescue
*Beach Safety
*CPR/EMR skills
*Public Communication/Interpretation

Each Junior Lifeguard Instructor is selected based on years of experience, enthusiasm about the program, knowledge of the program, leadership skills, and interactions with kids.  Many of our Instructors participated in the Junior Guard program when they were younger. This exchange from Junior Lifeguard to State Lifeguard has helped our program to continue to improve as well as have a very seasoned and respectable staff who are knowledgeable of the dynamic ocean environment in the Monterey Bay. The objective for each instructor is to promote quality ocean safety education in a fun and positive way.
