A Lifesaving Society Program

The Swim Instructor Transfer Course teaches current experienced, experience instructors of learn-to-swim programs how to deliver the Toronto Swim School  Learn-To-Swim program. It teaches candidates how to apply their existing knowledge and skills to this program.  Candidates must also demonstrate the ability to perform all of the current LSS Swim for Life stroke standards, skill and swim-to-survive items.  Candidates are evaluated through this practical performance.

As the TSS Swim Award Guide and Teaching Swim for Life manual are required for use in the TSS Swim Instructor Transfer Course, these books have been included in the course cost and will be issued to each candidate on the course date. Candidates will receive the Lifesaving Society Swim Instructor certification after successful completion.

Required Materials: Whistle 

Prerequisite: 16 years of age AND Bronze Cross or higher AND other agency learn-to-swim instructor certification (i.e. Red Cross Water Safety Instructor, YMCA Instructor)

Course Cost:  $100 incl. HST
