The Montreal Institute of Swimming just announced they will be offering lifesaving courses for free starting fall 2023, in an effort to encourage more people to become swim instructors and lifeguards. Becoming a swim instructor can be a rewarding and fulfilling career or hobby for several reasons:

  1. Helping others: As a swim instructor, you will be helping people of all ages learn a valuable life skill and potentially save their lives in the event of an emergency.
  2. It’s a rewarding job: Seeing your students progress and gain confidence in the water can bring a great sense of satisfaction and purpose.
  3. Physical activity: Teaching swimming requires you to be active and in the water, which can be a fun and healthy way to stay in shape.
  4. Flexibility: Many swim instruction jobs offer flexible schedules, making it a great option for those looking for part-time work or a second job.
  5. Career growth: There are many opportunities for advancement in the field of swim instruction, including becoming a head instructor, manager, or swim coach.
  6. Personal growth: Teaching others requires patience, communication skills, and the ability to think creatively, all of which can help you grow as a person.
