This summer Swim Ireland is teaming up with Local Sports Partnerships to deliver Open Water programmes - and we need Level 2 Swimming Teachers to help us!

Our six-week Open Water Skills programmes will be aimed at beginners getting in to open water swimming, and to ensure the best and safest experience for them, we have designed four Virtual CPDs for our Level 2 Swimming Teachers to complete.

Those who complete all 4 modules will be eligible to work with Swim Ireland’s Participation department and their LSP to run programmes in the Open Water this summer.

If you are a Level 2 Swimming Teacher, this is an ideal opportunity to upskill and get an introduction into teaching in open water. Each module costs just €10 and will earn you 1 CPD Point.

To sign up to the modules, please follow the links below. To get in touch with our Participation Department about joining our Open Water programmes teams, please email grainnemurphy@swimireland.ie
