WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Department of Natural Resources is seeking applicants for seasonal employment at Indiana’s State Parks and Reservoirs.

DNR said the swim season generally runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Hiring will begin immediately and last until all positions are filled.

Lifeguard positions are available at Brown County, Clifty Falls, Versailles, Spring Mill, Harmonie, O’Bannon Woods, McCormick’s Creek, Ouabache, Mounds, Indiana Dunes, Shakamak and Prophetstown state parks.

DNR said that lifeguarding tests are now offered online. The test is for first-year applicants only. Candidates who have already worked at a state park or reservoir facility need not take the test again.

As part of the application process, first-year applicants must pass the 50 question test by a score of at least 70 percent. Half of the test is about CPR and first aid and half is about lifeguard training knowledge. Applicants must be certified in lifeguarding and CPR before before taking the test.
