Coach trainings

Trainings are held in small groups. They are designed to incite eagerness for teaching among our candidates.

Choice of courses

Candidates can choose to become swimming coaches for babies and toddlers up to 4 years of age and swimming coaches for children older than 4 years, depending on their own interests and previous experience.

Individual courses last from 5 to 7 days and they include interactive lectures and practical work at the swimming pool. After the course, each candidate is awarded a mentor and assists at 50 lessons at the swimming pool, thus meeting preconditions for taking the exam. The exam consists of the theoretical and the practical part at the pool.

A candidate successfully finishing the training is awarded the FREDS SWIM ACADEMY certificate enabling him to teach at FREDS SWIM ACADEMY centres in Croatia and abroad.
