During our swim instructor certification training courses you’ll learn how to help individuals enjoy their time in the water safely – and in a wide range of ways. Throughout the courses we’ll focus on a number of key areas that can help you succeed as aquatics instructor.

These courses are designed to introduce the knowledge, skills and practices for the safe, ethical and effective support of coaching sessions

All courses and CPD workshops are delivered by trained Swim Sout Africa Tutor Assessors, who facilitate the sharing of knowledge – ensuring the maintenance and development of aquatic expertise. These workshops are either delivered in the standard course format in a classroom or via online platforms.
