Certification Program

A first of its kind certification for the learn to swim industry, our certification focuses on the fundamentals all swim instructors should know, leaving space for customized curriculum training developed by each learn to swim program. Training included is 100% online, and also requires verified in-water training and experience hours in order to sit for the certification exam.
