Renew your Swim Australia Teacher qualifications and continue to join us in our pursuit of producing a nation of safer, smarter, stronger swimmers.
Every four years a Swim Australia™ Teacher (SAT) or SAT specialist is required to update their accreditation through a “skills and knowledge audit”. Accreditation affirms your commitment to ongoing professional development, industry standards of practice and behavioural guidelines.
We encourage you to submit all accreditation renewal requirements before the expiry date so that you maintain continuity of accreditation and remain insured if you hold a current policy. On approval of your re-accreditation application, you will receive an electronic copy of your updated certificate and an ASCTA membership card with a further four years added to your current expiry date.
