The Qualification

Our qualification is the STA Baby & Preschool Instructors Qualification.  This is an internationally recognised qualification and is the qualification used by the majority baby swimming schools in Ireland and the UK.

The 3 day course includes pool and classroom based tuition.  Assessment is through on-course assessment, course work, theory test and a final practical assessment with an external examiner


No prior swimming teachers qualification is required. Baby & preschool swimming is very different to techniques and strokes taught to older children & adults, although prior experience with teaching is obviously an advantage.

A Lifeguard or Pool Safety Qualification and a Child Protection Certificate are required.  Do contact us to check if your Cert is acceptable for this course or where to find courses, if you do not already hold one.
