AUSTSWIM helps teachers gain the foundation they need to provide safe aquatic education, enabling them to provide families and communities with skills that will continue to make a positive impact on their lives for generations to come.
Qualifications and accreditations for swim teachers and coaches are offered through AUSTSWIM programmes. The AUSTSWIM Teacher License™ is recognised as the industry standard for swimming and water safety teachers in Australasia.
AUSTSWIM Aotearoa was established in 2014 as the New Zealand branch of the Australasian Council for the Teaching of Swimming and Water Safety (AUSTSWIM) following industry demand and growth in the number of courses and candidates.
NZRA is now the sole agent for AUSTSWIM aquatic education programmes in New Zealand. To find AUSTSWIM Aotearoa courses and events, see the calendar.
