Picture this: You are teaching your class of 12 swimmers when, all of a sudden, one of them requires emergency assistance in the water. Unfortunately the Lifeguard is already busy dealing with another matter. So who will rescue the struggling swimmer?

These situations can, and do, happen. As a swimming teacher or coach, you should be able to help when someone needs emergency assistance in the water.

The National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers & Coaches (NRASTC) qualification provides you with the necessary rescue and first aid skills you will need to make sure everybody is safe in your swimming lessons at all times.

This qualification is endorsed by a nunmber of national bodies including the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA), the Institute of Sport and Recreation Management and the Institute of Swimming Teachers and Coaches. It is also recognised in ‘Managing Health and Safety in Swimming Pools’ as being appropriate for those supervising programmed activities.

You will study for a total of 14 hours before completing your assessment. You will need to renew your qualification every 2 years to refresh your skills and learn any new information.

What will you learn?

You will learn all of the skills and knowledge needed to be competent to care for your swimmers whilst teaching them.

The course is split into 3 sections:

  1. The teacher, swimming pool and class management.
  2. Intervention rescues and emergency action.
  3. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid.
