Aspiring swim teachers on the north coast can learn the knowledge and skills required for professional certification, thanks to upcoming training in Tweed Heads and Lennox Head.

The AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety course, which is also suitable for current swim teachers who wish to brush up their training, will be held in late October and early November.

The course includes both theory and practical sessions, including how people learn, being an effective teacher, and aquatic safety, survival and rescue skills.

The north coast training courses have been organised by the Sport and Recreation division of the NSW Office of Communities.

Heidi Duncan, from the north coast office of Sport and Recreation, said that now is a great time to undertake training before the summer swim season begins.

‘This course provides candidates with essential competencies to teach swimming and water safety to children from four years of age or to adults, in either swimming pools or confined natural shallow water venues,’ said Ms Duncan.

To become accredited, course participants must complete all course assessments and hold an up-to-date CPR certificate. CPR training is available for an additional $70.

The course dates and times are:

Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre (Lennox Head)

Dates: October 26–27

Time: 9.30am–5pm both days

Cost: $390

Tweed Heads South Pool

Dates: November 1–2

Time: 8am–4pm both days

Cost $390
