Instructor Training

VAF partners with Hills Swimming in Sydney to deliver the swim instructor training in Vanuatu.

Swim Instructor training is held annually in the first week of December to coincide with school teacher availability and desirable water temperature.

We offer the Let’s Swim training for new-comers to swim instruction, which requires full attendance over a 3-5 day course and at least 20 hours of supervised teaching by one of the VAF staff. The fee for this course is 1,000VT.

Through Hills Swimming, we also offer the Swim Australia Teachers (SAT) training for more serious swim instructors who need international recognition, however this course needs a minimum of 5 participants. The fee for this course is 25,000VT which covers the cost of the course materials, registration and course presenters from Australia. We run this course by demand only, please contact us if you are interested in the SAT.

Swim coach training is offered to those who have progressed successfully through swim instructor training.

Hills Swimming has greatly assisted VAF in creating an appropriate training course and corresponding material from Swim Australia and ASTCA to help us reach remote villages.

Our next instructor training is scheduled for December 2017 however this may change with the upcoming South Pacific Mini Games. We are now accepting applications for the course. Please email for a registration form.
