Note for "Fillable" pdf files:  Windows 10 will use Edge as the default program for opening all pdf files. Being a browser/reader, Edge doesn’t have editing features and the fillable function of the pdf document will appear not to work.   Open fillable pdf files with either Google Chrome or Adobe Acrobat (Internet Explorer 10 and older will work too), then the fillable features will work.  Adobe Reader will have the same problem as Edge

The ARC has eliminated the dual process for the full STSC course – which was finding an ARC instructor, waiting for the instructor to set up the course and send a special link to the coach before the coach could take the online component of the course, which resulted in a STSC Progress Report cert being issued that many of you have received in the past. Those steps have been eliminated completely. 

Effective immediately, coaches will take the STSC Online Content Only course, then find an ARC instructor to complete the in-water session and get a second certificate from the ARC for the in-water component only. This new ARC in-water certificate will have the following printed on it: Safety Training for Swim Coaches In-Water Skills Session.

Starting with STSC certs issued this month, you will ALWAYS get two different certs. The ARC STSC Online Content Only certificate must be presented with one of the following:

            An acceptable lifeguard certificate

            OR

            The generic STSC in-water skills checklist (can be signed by lifeguard instructors from several other accepted agencies).  Checklist is HERE.

            OR

            The new ARC STSC In-Water Skills Session certificate (this certificate may include Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED, which is also acceptable for our CPR requirement)

The official renewal date for the STSC requirement will always be the date on the certificate that expires first. That policy has not changed.
