Awards in Teaching Aquatics and Coaching Swimming

Aquatic Overview

Our Swimming Teacher Courses and Swimming Coaching qualifications give you the necessary tools to start or progress your career in swimming teaching or coaching. ICON have a great range of Swimming Instructor Courses for you to explore below.

We’re an established ASA Approved Centre. We take pride in delivering the highest level of aquatic and swimming coaching for all learners enrolling on our swimming instructor courses. Here at ICON, we ensure two things: you achieve your full potential in your qualification, and you become equipped and fit for the job, both on and off poolside, with the knowledge and skills to take you into a professional environment.

The ASA Awarding Body reviews us as “an excellent centre which has a highly organised and professional approach.” Offering best practice, high quality teaching, we require learners to develop an ongoing set of skills for their workplace roles, with a customer centred, solution-focused approach. These skills can range from delivering outstanding customer service to a technical knowledge of aquatics: we aim to equip you with the talents needed to succeed as a swimming teacher.

Our approach involves collaborating with our aquatic operators, centres and partners to provide training schemes that fit both the trainer’s and business’ needs. An off the shelf approach is not good enough for us, nor do we consider it good enough for our learners. ICON is a progressive company, one which leads, and stands at the forefront of innovative, flexible swimming course provision.

Here at ICON, we train, and we support. We invest in people. We seek out the best, and take on the best, swimming teachers and coaches. We work to develop the talent, in our qualified learners, to inspire future generations of swimmers and coaches alike. We are the best choice to get you started on your way to becoming a swimming instructor.
