Junior lifeguard training offered as summer arrives

June 14, 2013 by  

The city of Oakland is offering a class for Junior Lifeguards at the start of next week.

Located less than 30 minutes from Fremont, this introductory course teaches students water safety and rescue, CPR, and first aid. The course will take place at the East Bay Regional Park District, 2950 Peralta Oaks Ct., Oakland.

The activities presented are geared to develop skills in personal safety and to increase awareness of safety in and around the water. A snack break will be offered during the morning and afternoon sessions, and students should bring a lunch. Students must be able to swim 25 yards on the first day of class, and parents must be present the first day for the swim test. It begins at noon on Monday, June 17.

Elsewhere on the same day, entrepreneurs will want to attend ‘From Concept to Company’, which will be held at 6:00 pm on Monday, June 17, at Carr & Ferrel LLP, 120 Constitution Drive in Menlo Park.

This class will teach participants how to take their ideas and turn them into reality. The workshop is interactive and led by people who have made their dreams a reality. The panel includes early stage attorneys, marketing managers, venture capitalists, and other successful entrepreneurs.

A question-and-answer session will also be held. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Admission is $45 to $75 and includes hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks. For more information, call (650) 812-3400. Entrepreneurs will no doubt find business card printing an invaluable resource when seeking funding and resources for their projects.
