The information about BSA Lifeguard is very inaccurate. We do require a professional rescuers certification covering CPR for all ages, and AED's "CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer and Healthcare Provider" and our training with a ring buoy is literally just one requirement while 90% of our training was with a rescuer tube very hands on. In addition the hours to get certified are from my understanding more than any other so were are more rigorously trained with timed requirements and so much more including head/neck stabilization in all water conditions.
It took me an entire 6 day week with about 8 hour classes and after class lifeguard "intern" hours; our warm up at 6 am as a mile swim or more!
