Hi folks –
The Red Cross will host an academy in Iowa if we hit the 6-person minimum for approved IT applications for either LGIT or WSIT (or both – separately).
To do this they need approved IT applications on file with folks who are in Iowa.
You can learn about the process of applying here: https://www.redcrosslearningcenter.org/s/instructor-trainer-candidates
The application is valid for 1 year once you are approved.
We have a lot of upcoming LGI and WSI classes in Iowa City and I’d be willing to work with anyone on dates if they needed other options and could come to us. There are also some WSIT and LGITs that travel throughout the state to teach that may be able to bring a class near/to you.
Keep in mind that if you don’t have the requirements needed for WSIT or LGIT you can ask for an exception due to your job position as an aquatics professional. Email me if you have any other Q’s – I’m happy to talk through this as I’d like to see another group of WSIT/LGITs in the state!
