In our continuous efforts to enhance the quality and relevance of our training, we are transitioning to new units that will further elevate the standards of swimming and water safety education.
We are introducing new units to the SISSS00132 course curriculum, designed to provide a more comprehensive and up-to-date approach to swimming instruction and water safety. These changes are based on industry feedback, best practices, and the latest advancements in aquatic education.
Enhanced Curriculum: The new units offer a more structured and engaging learning experience, equipping instructors with the latest techniques and methodologies in swimming and water safety education.
Industry Alignment: These changes are aligned with current industry standards, ensuring that our candidates are well-prepared to excel in their roles as swimming and water safety teachers.
Improved Learning Outcomes: The new units are designed to foster a deeper understanding of water safety principles, effective teaching methods, and hands-on practical skills.
Timeline: The transition to the new units will take effect from 30th October 2023
Support and Resources: We understand that change can raise questions, and we are committed to assisting you throughout this transition. We will be available to answer any questions or concerns to ensure a seamless integration of the new units.

These units will be included as part of the new skillset and have been amended to provide clearer information, and extended to cover determining participant need, modifying activities and evaluating service provision.
