The Swim Ireland Clubs & Community Department in collaboration with the Education Department are pleased to announce that all Teacher and Coach Licensing as well as all CPD points which are due to expire between 1st July 2021 – 31st December 2021 will be extended for a 6-month period.

In light of our prolonged absence from the water and following on from the previous extension to Licensing and CPD in early 2021, we have taken on board the feedback from our members and clubs, and we have made the decision to extend the expiry dates and give our teachers and coaches additional time to collect their CPD points and renew their licenses as we continue to return to the water.

Head of Clubs & Community, Adam Cox has said that “Swim Ireland recognise the immense pressure and continuing array of challenges and restrictions facing our teachers and coaches at present and it was our aim to recognise this and continue to support them in any way we can."

The Swim Ireland team have created a diverse range of courses and engagement opportunities for members over the past sixteen months and it is the intention to keep this going throughout the pandemic and beyond. If you require any help or support in relation to licensing or upcoming CPD courses, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us membership@swimireland.ie
