If you are looking for a place to take CPR/Lifeguard certification - even if it is offered free of charge - you would be wasting your time and energy. The instructors set you up to fail and humiliate you along the line. On the day of the final CPR/Lifeguard test, they pass people who should not be passed for the sake of hiring staff, and fail people who would actually contribute in a positive way to the instructional staff.
