Renew your Swim Australia Teacher accreditation and continue to join us in our pursuit of producing a nation of safer, smarter, stronger swimmers.

Every three years a Swim Australia™ Teacher (SAT) or SAT specialist is required to update their accreditation through a “skills and knowledge audit”. Accreditation renewal affirms your commitment to ongoing professional development, industry standards of practice, and behavioural guidelines.

Over a three-year period, all levels of Teaching are required to accumulate a minimum number of 100 practical teaching hours as well as 15 professional development points, which are earned by attending or participating in approved activities.

We encourage you to submit all accreditation renewal requirements before the expiry date so that you maintain the continuity of accreditation and remain insured if you hold a current policy.

On approval of your accreditation renewal application, you will receive an electronic copy of your updated certificate and your updated accreditation expiry date will be reflected on your Profile in our Membership database DITA, you will also receive for the life of your accreditation (3 years) SWIM Graduate Membership and COMPLIMENTARY Teacher Insurance.
