    1. Water Safety Instructor Pre-Course Skills Test (ages 16+)
      9:00 am – 11:00 am

      This course provides candidates with the training that they need to plan and conduct courses within the American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety guidelines.  The curriculum covers teaching progressions, lesson planning, recognizing common skill errors, and providing corrective feedback.  Through video and hands-on skill building, the course features clearly described and applied teaching strategies.  Upon successful completion of all activities and written exams, students will receive an American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Certificate.  There is a physical pre-course skills test which takes place in the pool and must be passed in order to take the course.  Please see below for a list of skills needed for the pre-course test.
