Swim Ireland and the American Swimming Coaches Association have agreed a partnership around the distribution of a range of the ASCA CPD modules in Ireland for Irish candidates. These modules will also help all teachers and coaches complete their CPD and Elective elements for their Swim Ireland License applications which are now Mandatory for all teachers and coaches in Clubs as of October 2013 and for all our associate membership. These modules will help coaches and teachers develop their own knowledge and expertise in a home based environment and are an alternative to the Classic group based, tutor led CPD modules currently available. These modules are available online/electronically and can be emailed to you to work thorough and complete and gain CPD credit and points for your license, at your own pace. A swimming teacher and coach is usually very busy juggling home life, work and coaching/teaching, so these have been designed to fit in around your schedules.
The following modules were launched at the Coaching clinic in Dublin and we would encourage all coaches to consider their own and their club’ coaches CPD requirements and contact the SI office for further information. Sign up to complete these modules at your own pace! These modules are only available to Swim Ireland members (Associate and Club).
The first three months of the distribution will be a Pilot to assess the number of CPD points SI can provide to teachers and coaches against our License system. Future Costs per CPD will be in line with current ASCA prices however before September 1st these modules can be accessed at 20.00 euro per candidate so it is worthwhile signing up for them now.
If you would like to register to complete these CPD modules then we will arrange for your home study pack to be issued to you upon receipt of full payment. Please speak to a member of the education team if you require more information.
Please note that the distribution of these modules and this new partnership venture between Swim Ireland and the American Coaches Association is supported by the Irish Swimming Coaches Association.
