(UNDATED) - Lifeguarding tests are online for applicants seeking positions at Indiana State Parks facilities during the 2015 recreation season.

The test is for first-year applicants only. First-year applicants must pass the test as part of the job application. Candidates who have already worked at a state park facility are exempt from this requirement.

The test is 50 questions, with approximately half of the test covering CPR and first aid, and half covering lifeguarding knowledge and training. The successful applicant must score at least 70 percent.

Applicants must be certified in lifeguarding and CPR for the professional rescuer before taking the test. If an applicant is enrolled in a certification class but has yet to finish, he or she may take the test but must complete certification before being eligible for employment.

Passing the test qualifies a certified applicant to be considered for a lifeguard position with Indiana State Parks and does not recertify a lifeguard. Lifeguards must maintain valid certifications on their own. Certification course work may be obtained through the Red Cross or atYMCA locations offering the program and must be completed before swim season.

The swim season generally runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Hiring will begin immediately. Positions are available at Brown County, Clifty Falls, Versailles, Spring Mill, Harmonie, O'Bannon Woods, McCormick's Creek, Ouabache, Mounds, Indiana Dunes, Shakamak, Turkey Run and Prophetstown state parks, and Lieber State Recreation Area.
