    Can anyone please tell me what to expect in the first week as a Lifeguard when doing the Disney College Program? Like what do you do the first day? When do you have the swim test? When is Traditions? Things like that.

    Thanks! :confused3

    Hi! I'm a current lifeguard cp. I work at the Contemporary. I'd be happy to answer any of your questions!

    Expect check in day to be long. You'll be going through all the things all CPs do, but on top of it, you'll be doing your drug test and your swim test.

    You'll have traditions in a few days after check in. Then you'll have a welcome to recreation class, 3 days of lifeguard training, and 3 days of OTJ training before you begin as a lifeguard on your own. I have way more information about this on my blog. Hope this helps!

    My post on the first day:
