USMS has decided to offer coach and adult learn to swim instructor training in regional locations. In 2018 the courses in our region will be held in Oregon on September 15 (for Level 1 and 2 Coach Certification) and September 16 (for the Adult Learn to Swim Program). 

Registration for these training sessions will open early in 2018 and the link will be posted here and on the USMS website under Coach Certification and Instructor Certification respectively under the Coaches tab.

Financial support for PNA members interested in attending either of these sessions is available.  PNA has budgeted to defray up to $125 for the coach instructor program or the ALTS training.  The ALTS training application also spells out the requirements for reimbursement-that the instructor has a site and a program already identified and has a plan to implement an adult learn to swim program within months after the completion of the program.
