Exactly as the name implies, swimming teachers pass on knowledge, advice and tips for people to properly move and navigate in the water. Swimming teachers should be able to teach people at every level of ability, whether it’s helping those who’ve had limited access or interaction with the water gain confidence and experience, or professional swimmers who are looking to refine their techniques and learn new skills.
How to become a swimming teacher
Those looking to attain a swimming teacher job should ensure they have undertaken the required courses and gained the proper accreditation from Austswim. Their training gives insight and instruction on how to teach the young and the old, as well as those who might be suffering from physical and mental illness, or are recovering from injury.
It's also vital that swimming teachers have basic first aid knowledge and are able to competently perform CPR.
