Important: We require all Race Guards to be CPR, First Aid, and AED certified. Before filling out the application, please have scans or photos of your current certifications and your driver's license available for upload (.pdf, .gif, .png or .jpg formats accepted). If you do not hold current certifications, please email us at and we will quickly arrange for you to attend one of our certification and training courses.


  1. Have your current CPR, AED, and First Aid Certifications at hand. If any of your certifications are expired, you can now sign up for a refresher course and get your certifications updated. If you are having trouble locating your certifications and you obtained them through a Race Guards Certification Course, please email Janice Penrose at to assist you. 
  2. Complete the Race Guards volunteer application form. Upload scans or photos of your current CPR, AED and First Aid Certifications (mandatory). Review, sign the waiver and submit your volunteer application.
