Royal Life Saving provides a number of Swimming and Water Safety Teacher courses. These courses are for those wanting to enter the aquatic industry as a teacher of swimming and water safety or for those wishing to extend their skills and knowledge.
These courses give you the essential competencies to teach swimming and water safety to people from four years of age in swimming pools and confined natural shallow water venues. Note that these courses are a pre-requisite for all extension courses.
The range of extension courses available include:
- Teacher of Infant and Preschool Aquatics. This gives you the essential competencies to deliver safe and enjoyable aquatic activity programs for children between the ages of six months and four years.
- Teacher of Adults. This gives you the specific skills and teaching strategies to teach adults.
- Teacher of Aquatics – Access and Inclusion. This gives you the specific skills and teaching strategies required to deliver programs and services that meet the needs of a diverse range of people in an aquatic environment. It enables you to effectively provide aquatics access and inclusion to all people regardless of disability, chronic condition, age, and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
- Teacher of Competitive Strokes. This gives you the specific skills and teaching strategies to bridge the gap between swim teaching and swim coaching.
All Royal Life Saving training is delivered in line with COVID safe requirements. Participant and trainer safety remains our number one priority.
