Ocean City Beach Patrol Testing Now for the 2016 summer season

OCBP logoIf you’ve ever wanted to be a lifeguard in Ocean City, Maryland, you have a chance to tryout for the 2016 Ocean City Beach Patrol on Saturday, August 8 and September 5.

Because of the unique demands of the job, the Ocean City Beach Patrol does not require or recognize certification or past experience with other agencies. Anyone seeking employment with the OCBP must successfully complete all aspects of an eight-phase pre-employment physical skills evaluation in Ocean City. Once a candidate passes the physical skills test they are appointed to a 65-hour, paid  ($12.99/hr and $14.07 after probation) Surf Rescue Academy where they are drug tested before they are trained in all necessary skills, techniques, procedures and protocols of the Beach Patrol.

There will be pre-employment physical skills evaluations for the 2016 season, on Saturday, August 8, 2015 and Saturday, September 5, 2015.  Anyone interested in becoming a lifeguard should call beach patrol headquarters at 410-289-7556.
