Water Safety Instructor

Water Safety Instructors (swimming lessons instructors) are trained to teach children and adults water safety, survival and swimming skills, and give community water safety presentations. It’s a fun job that will help you develop teaching and leadership skills. 

There are no upcoming courses scheduled. Please check back for upcoming courses.


  • Must be 16 at time class begins.
  • You must attend all classes to pass.
  • No refund will be issued if you do not pass.
  • Strokes you need to know proficiently for at least 25 yards each:
    • Back crawl
    • Breast stroke
    • Butterfly 
    • Elementary backstroke
    • Front crawl

It is highly recommended to start practicing your strokes immediately, especially breaststroke and butterfly. Class is not the time to learn the strokes - you will need to know all the strokes before class begins.
