Certification programs

Genesis Place is an authorized training partner in delivering Canadian Red Cross and Lifesaving Society water safety programs and certifications. Our instructors are certified Red Cross and Lifesaving instructors and we offer many certifications courses throughout the year, including Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross, National Lifeguard, Standard First Aid, Water Safety Instructor and Red Cross Babysitting. 

Minimum registration numbers must be met one week prior to start date in order for courses to run.

Refund process
Withdrawal from any program prior to program commencement date will be subject to a non-refundable $10 administration fee per program/ registrant.
Once a program has started withdrawals will not be permitted.

If you miss a class, Genesis Place will not offer a make-up class and will not issue a credit. If Genesis Place cancels a single class (ex. from pool contamination), a credit for that class will be applied to your account.

If the facility cancels a program, a full reimbursement will be issued.

Genesis Place reserves the right to cancel and/or combine all aquatic and dry land programs (registered and/or drop-in) that have not met minimum enrolment numbers, without notice.
