Becoming a Swim Ireland Level 1 Assistant Swimming Teacher qualifies you to assist in teaching people how to swim, giving them a life-skill and a sport for life.

This course is now online, allowing you to complete two key parts of the course from the comfort of your home, as well as some parts of the Practical Assessment.

The pool-side element of our practical assessment will take place when it is safe to do so, and at a location which suits.

More details are below. Don't forget, Swim Ireland members receive discounts for all our qualification courses.
