Would you like to earn your way to becoming a Town of Hinton employee? 

Can you swim (even just a little bit..)? 

If so ... You’re in luck!

The Town of Hinton Aquatic Department is holding a recruitment program this July & August to fast track you to becoming an Instructor Guard. All you need is your grade 12, or your GED. 

Aquatic Trainees will be given the opportunity to complete all of the important lifeguarding training at no cost, including:

  • Bronze Star
  • Bronze Medallion
  • Bronze Cross
  • Lifesaving Society Standard First Aid and CPR-C
  • National Lifeguard (pool)
  • Lifesaving Swim Instructor

The training costs will be prorated, meaning you don't have to pay a penny - unless you decide not to work with Hinton Aquatics anymore, in which case you would need to pay back training costs at a rate of 70.26$/ month remaining until you hit 3 years of employment.

For more information on this program, attend one of our in person information sessions: 

Saturday June 1st between 10:00am and 1:00pm 

Sunday June 2nd between 2:0pm-4:00pm

Wednesday June 5th between 12:00pm and 1:00pm & 6:00pm-8:00pm

Can't make it? No problem! Find out more by calling the Aquatic Supervisor at 780-740-8063.
