New! Paid certification training for lifeguards

Interested in working for Boulder as a lifeguard, but don’t have your certification yet? No problem! Here are the steps to successfully become a superhero lifeguard:

  1. Apply online
  2. Complete a swim test, which will be a part of your interview.
  3. If you pass the swim test, we’ll pay for your certification class and your time in the class.
  4. Pass the class and an additional swim test
  5. You’re now a lifeguard!

Want to work as a lifeguard, but don’t see an open spot in the certification class? Please apply and we will contact you when we have the next available class.

Not sure if you’ll pass the swim test? No problem! We still want you as a water slide attendant. You can keep swimmers safe on the slides and attend monthly lifeguard in-service trainings to hone your skills, if you want to pursue being a lifeguard. You can also transition to other great parks and rec positions in the future.

Earn $12.56 – $34/hour (based on position and experience) with flexible hours. Get paid to learn recreation, eco-park care, job and leadership skills! We’re seeking positive, reliable youth and adults (ages 14+) for seasonal and hourly positions.
