AUSTSWIM announces record number of teachers of swimming and water safety

AUSTSWIM announces record number of teachers of swimming and water safety
November 25, 2020

AUSTSWIM, the national body for the teaching and licensing of teachers of swimming and water safety, has revealed that it has achieved its highest ever volume of licensed teachers of swimming and water safety.

AUSTSWIM Chief Executive, Carl Partridge has advised that over 32,000 teachers currently hold an AUSTSWIM™ Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety licence with over 12,500 new teachers in the process of gaining an accreditation across all states and territories.

Commenting on the record numbers, Partridge (pictured) stated “the impact of COVID-19 and the Bushfires has been tough on the sector. We made a commitment earlier in the year to focus on helping the industry recover and the number of new teachers coming through will certainly go a long way to helping with this recovery.

“As the national body we realise how critical the skill our teachers teach is in preventing drownings. And we have achieved this working behind the scenes by supporting our AUSTSWIM Community funding program”

AUSTSWIM™ has trained over 360,000 Teachers of Swimming and Water Safety™ since its inception in 1979 and remains the benchmark in Swimming Teacher training with the only internationally accredited licensing system in the world.
