COVID-19 has placed significant pressure on the aquatic industry and the community at large. We understand that your journey, to either become an AUSTSWIM Teacher, or expand your skills and knowledge as a current AUSTSWIM Teacher, has been disrupted.

Whilst we are currently facing significant challenges as a community and an industry, AUSTSWIM would also like to acknowledge the significant role that swimming and water safety plays in the social, emotional, physical, and mental health of our communities. Our industry is a resilient one and when the appropriate time comes AUSTSWIM Teachers will play a significant role for our communities to reconnect.

 To our future AUSTSWIM Teachers, welcome to the family and congratulations on taking your first step into the aquatics industry. We’re sure you have many questions as to what the future holds.

To our current AUSTSWIM Teachers, expanding their skills, thank you for the role you play in teaching a skill for life.
