AUSTSWIM offers 50% subsidised Swimming and Water Safety training in Victoria

AUSTSWIM offers 50% subsidised Swimming and Water Safety training in Victoria
December 4, 2020

AUSTSWIM - in recognising how challenging 2020 has been for the Victorian aquatic industry with an extended period of forced closure due to COVID-19 - is providing 50% subsidised AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety training at a number of aquatic centres in metro Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The subsidised training is AUSTSWIM’s attempt to attract new teachers into the industry by providing some relief to those hit hard by COVID-19.

With the Victorian Aquatic Industry having been in the unfortunate position of forced closure from March to November, AUSTSWIM feels an overwhelming desire and obligation to provide this support to the Victorian aquatic industry aiming for the sector to grow and return to its former glory in the not too distant future.

AUSTSWIM intends to launch an array of initiatives to assist with the recovery of Victoria following the State’s prolonged lockdown, with the first initiative being an impressive 50% discount which is now available for all those interested in enrolling into the AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety Course.

AUSTSWIM wants those with a passion for swimming and water safety to start a career that makes a difference to our communities.

An AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety has an influential role that engages and interacts with students (4 years – adults) leading skills and drills that provide knowledge, skill and understanding in water safety and swimming in pools and confined natural shallow water venues. 

The AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water has both Vocational Education and Training requirements and non-accredited training requirements which have been designed and set by AUSTSWIM.

Course details are listed below however AUSTSWIM notes there are limited spots available.

This is a one-time offer, “first in best dressed” 50% off each of the below enrolments: $195p/p (Was $395)
