Lifeguarding in the summer

My daughter is an active swimmer and has done some lifeguard training through Oakland Parks and Rec, but is interested in working as a lifeguard in the coming summer. I really want her to get good training as I feel like it's a big responsibility. Does anybody have any experience / suggestions / cautions, etc. on a good process and good jobs to seek out?

Berkeley Y offers a lifeguard certification class. There are skill tests at the end to get certified. Once she has the certification she will be able to get a job, and there will probably be some ongoing training.
