Our courses are changing to support the current operating environment

The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting our society as a whole. Just like you, our current ways of life are changing every day and we are working hard to adapt in the best interests of our staff, our community and everyone who attends our courses.

We’re in this together and we are committed as ever, and will do everything in our power to take care of one another. The wellbeing of our swimming community is our priority and over the coming weeks we want to provide opportunities to keep in touch.

Your training

We are reviewing our courses and the government’s guidance every day and are aiming to give everyone at least seven days’ notice if we have to postpone the face to face elements of their course.

It is really important to us that anyone in this situation has the opportunity to start their training. To enable this we are offering our online training to those booked onto a course.

This will give you the opportunity to work through the theoretical elements of the course online at home, at your own pace, over the coming weeks and months. Customers will then be able to choose a face to face or blended learning course in the future to complete the rest of their training and qualification.

This will all be communicated to you on an individual basis based on your course booking.

Upcoming webinars

We will be moving some upcoming CPDs with no pool-based activities to webinars, so you can continue with your personal development.

A webinar is an interactive online seminar that is led by the tutor and allows participants in different locations to be guided through the course content, hear the presenter, ask questions and be involved in group text discussions.

We are aiming to give everyone at least seven days’ notice if their CPD is moving online.

We will also be creating additional webinars over the coming weeks, so you are able to keep engaged with the swimming community during a time where we may face isolation and separation.
