Support your community in the water - Upcoming Swim Teacher & Manager Courses in Wellington


Don’t miss out on the upcoming Swimming New Zealand (SNZ) courses being held in Wellington.


Whether you are wanting to take your first step towards becoming a swim teacher or if you would like to further develop your swim teaching skills and knowledge there is a course for you.


Take the skills and knowledge learned at one of these courses to share with those in your community and help keep them safer in the water. There are three great courses coming up in Wellington; The SNZ Swim Teacher Award, Train the Trainer Course and the Early Childhood Swim Teacher Award.


The SNZ Swim Teacher Award is a nationally recognised training programme developed to train people for teaching swimming and personal survival. On completion of the SNZ STA course requirements, participants also receive the National Certificate in Recreation and Sport – Aquatics (Swim Education) (43 Level 3 credits).


The SNZ Train the Trainer Course is a great opportunity for senior swim teachers, pool deck supervisors, program coordinators and swim school/club managers to develop skills and understanding in effective training processes for staff.


The Early Childhood Swim Teacher Award is for the swim teacher who wants to develop their skills teaching Baby and Pre-school classes. The course and resources have been developed in consultation with Gill Connell who is recognised world-wide as a leading educational consultant in child development, movement, word study and perceptual motor development (PMP).
