BINGO. A first Aid class is a half a day class that can make the difference between getting that job. When an employer see that a teen has first aid certification they move to the top of the list. This not only shows that they have some interest besides themselves, it decreases the liability of that employer to have first aid trained employees. Being an Eagle Scout moves you to the very top of the list. My son was hired on the spot for a lifeguard position when the waterslide company learned that he was an Eagle Scout. Same thing happened when he applied at Best Buy.
My son is an Eagle Scout, too. He really wanted to be a lifeguard this summer, but he hopes to get a job at Guitar Center when school starts again. He’s going to community college, so he could replace an employee who goes somewhere out of the city.
