Swimming instructors and Water safety officers

The VacSwim and Interm swimming programs require a large team of swimming instructors and Water safety officers to present a successful program.  All of our instructors hold:

  • AUSTSWIM accreditation;
  • A current CPR certificate;
  • A current Working With Children Check card; and
  • A Department of Education National Police History Check clearance.

Our Water safety officers are not required to hold an AUSTSWIM license but do require a Surf Rescue or Surf Bronze Medallion.

If you are interested in joining our team as an instructor or Water safety officer, all the information you need to get started is included on this website.  Please navigate the site using the menus on the left hand side to find more details on the requirements and application process.
