After this "part-time" Lifeguard gets all their certifications, they will work the first month at $14 per hour just to break even for the cost of their required and preferred training certifications . After this "part time" lifeguard executes ALL the job responsibilities listed, what job is the Aquatic Director going to do?

Sounds like a full time supervisory position, not a part time job for a college student.
Just an opinion....
