Instructor Training Program
Join Our Team!
Across the US, aquatic professionals with decades of experience in training instructors have teamed up to formulate a teaching methodology. Each apprentice instructor will be provided a minimum of 16 hours per week of hands on in-water experience with a variety of children, ages 6 months to 6 years, over a 5-6 week period. The training program includes instruction in teaching breath control, propulsion, floating, rollover breathing, survival skills, transitional stroke development and troubleshooting problems with students of all ages.
Academic Education and Certification
The academic areas covered are child development and behavioral techniques as they apply to teaching infants and young children to swim and survive in the water. Also included is a self-study course on anatomy and physiology, including safety guidelines for these swimming lessons. New instructors receive a certificate of completion of their apprenticeship, emphasizing all the in-water and academic work that they have completed. CPR and First Aid is a necessary requirement, and must be maintained yearly.
