The Aquatic Management Instructor course prepares instructors to teach the Lifesaving Society's Aquatic Supervisor and/or Aquatic Manager certifications. That is, Aquatic Management Instructors are certified to teach the management training courses they hold (i.e., those who hold Aquatic Supervisor may teach it; similarly, those who hold Aquatic Manager may teach it).
Prerequisites: Swim Instructor or Lifesaving Instructor, National Lifeguard and Aquatic Supervisor or Aquatic Manager certifications (need not be current). Do you have the prerequisites to take this course?
Instruction & certification: Current Aquatic Management Instructor Trainers teach and certify candidates. The Lifesaving Society deems its certifications to be "current" for 24 months from the certification date.
