Get Your First Swim Coach Qualification Online

October 19, 2020

Swim Ireland has now opened bookings for October and November online Blended Level 1 Assistant Swimming Coach courses.

Like our online Level 1 Assistant Swimming Teacher, and online Level 2 Swimming Teacher and Level 2 Swimming Coach courses, the Level 1 Assistant Swimming Coach course will consist of three elements:

1. Online Module - this you complete online in your own time via our STEP platform

2. Virtual Classroom - you will complete four 2.5hr modules, led by a tutor in our Virtual Classroom

3. Practical - you will complete at a later stage, on poolside. Dates to be confirmed.

To book one of our assistant swimming coach courses coming up in the Virtual Classroom this October and November, head to our Level 1 Assistant Swimming Coach bookings page, where you will find full details and how to register.

Understanding the pressures our members are under at this time, we are applying a practical pricing structure to all our education courses. This means that you can pay for each element separately. For more details, head to the booking page.
