New RAPs approved ASA Level 2 Certificate

New RAPs approved ASA Level 2 Certificate

The ASA's main training partner, the Institute of Swimming, has announced details of how practising swimming teachers can achieve the new RAPs approved ASA Level 2 Certificate in Teaching Aquatics (QCF) qualification.
Created by SkillsActive in conjunction with the ASA, RLSS UK and the STA, the Register of Aquatic Professionals (RAPs) provides a system of regulation to ensure that individuals working in the aquatic industry meet agreed National Occupational Standards (NOS) and best practice guidelines.
RAPs also supports the training needs and career development of those working in related roles, including swimming teachers, lifeguards, pool managers and pool plant operators.
The IoS, have launched a RAPs approved qualification to meet the requirements of SkillsActive. Undertaking the new qualification, although optional, will give teachers the opportunity to both up skill and join RAPs.
The ASA recommends all employers consider RAPs registration a pre-requisite to employment, to give your organisation a competitive advantage and verify that your staff are committed to continued professional development.
