Water Safety Instructor Prep (Step 1)

The Water Safety Instructor Prep is the first course in the Swimming Instructor certification.  This course includes all of the theory behind being a swimming instructor as well as teaching methods, learning styles, physical principles, swimming progressions, communication, safety supervision and water safety. Candidates will be required to perform swimming strokes to a Swim Kids 10 standard by the last day of the course. For completion, candidates will complete a Skill Screen Component, an Online Component, and a Teaching Experience Component.

* We recommend bringing a tablet or laptop to all classes**

Water Safety Instructor (Step 2) must be completed within 6 months of the completion of this course.

WSI PREP courses are moving to COMBO ONLY courses in March 2020.
