Swim Ireland Education is celebrating aquatics in its entirety by rolling out an exciting range of new CPD for coaches and teachers in all our disciplines.

We wanted to demonstrate just how inclusive our sport is, and that our sport can go from cradle to grave, creating pathways for all.

We hope that these CPDs offer an exciting opportunity to explore new activities or new business ventures in preparation for pools reopening and swimmers returning to clubs and Learn to Swim Programmes across the country.

What you see below is also just the beginning, and we will be adding plenty more CPD to this list from Baby Swimming to Open Water, covering Swimming, Water Polo, Diving and Synchronised Swimming.
