Swim Instructor Training Outline

Swim Instructor Training is a 3 week process. Training includes completion of our manual, workbook, in-water training, and test. 

  • Week 1: Read manual, complete workbook, watch videos and complete written test.

  • Weeks 2-3: In-Water Training – put to work what you have learned from the manual. Learn and practice Saguaro Aquatics’ swim instruction techniques side by side with experienced instructors.

  • Admin Training:  Our administrative staff will set up an Admin Training meeting to teach you how to log into the Staff Portal, retrieve your online schedule, take attendance, collect employment documents (print and complete from links below) and complete time cards.

  • Training pay is paid at the end of training and is contingent on successful completion of training and acceptance of work shifts. $10/hr
