You can now book our online Level 2 Swimming Coach course

June 01, 2021

Our Blended Level 2 Swimming Coach qualification course is now available in the Virtual Classroom, so you can take your coaching to the next level, from the comfort of your own home.

To gain this qualification, there are three elements to complete - Online Module in your own time, Virtual Classroom with your Swim Ireland Tutor, and Practical Assessments.

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

You can find more details about these courses and book via our Education Calendar.

How it works

Like many of our other Online Qualification Courses, the Level 2 Swimming Coach course is split into three elements:

  1. Online Module via our eLearning Platform: STEP
  2. Six 3hr sessions in our Virtual Classroom with your Swim Ireland Tutor
  3. A two-part Practical Assessment

The Practical will take place in two parts: The first is with your Swim Ireland Tutor and the second is at home, with your own club. During the second part of the Practical, you will create videos to upload for your Swim Ireland Tutor to assess.
