Training and Certification Overview

The SWIMMING.co.za - Swim Instructor Training Courses are made up of 3 Modules that encompass all levels of training. Once you complete our course and log your required training / apprenticeship hours you will be rated to train all of the below-mentioned modules.

(6-18 Months)
StarTots (18-36 Months)
Swim School (3 Yrs +)  
Stroke School 
(3 Yrs +)

Each of our programs are broken into 5 colour levels. Each level contains both swim and safety skills that work toward the achievement of a swim and safety benchmark. The system allows instructors to easily grade the student until they master the benchmarks. Once the benchmarks are met, the student then moves to the next level. It is a performance-based system, allowing flexibility to the student and the trainer. 

Although you are not required to have all the materials, we feel that it is important to train with all the materials, so that you can identify and affiliate with the individual courses and levels. You also will need the materials once you start instructing.The standards and structure of the course are discussed in detail on the course. On completion of your program, you stay in contact with our Program Directors.

Once you have completed the Swim Instructor course, you will be registered with international SAI body or as a PADI Swim Instructor depending on how you wish to train your courses. You will then need to train, and stay in date in accordance with their quality assurance through your instructor trainer (program director). 

We will assist you in acquiring the in-water hours that you need to be comfortable to train. We will also work through the SAI and the PADI Swim School Standards and Guidelines for Quality Management. It is highly beneficial to you as an instructor to be aware of the course structure and standards. 
Once you are a Qualified SAI or PADI Swim Instructor and you want to start training, there is a full list of materials that you can purchase from the SWIMMING.co.za training team.
