Why learn to swim and at what age can swimming be taught ?

To secure your bathing, you should learn to swim from an early age.

Drowning, and more particularly that of children, is one of the main causes of accidents. It is therefore essential to learn to swim as soon as possible.

However, anyone can learn to swim at any age. The teaching method will therefore be different depending on physical condition, level of swimming and age.

Why does switzerland teachers pass swimming diploma in France?

In Switzerland the lifeguard diploma is mandatory to work in a swimming pool, but teaching swimming techniques and other pool programs or activities is not.

The most popular Swiss diploma is the “Brevet Pro Pool”. The duration of the training is approximately 11 hours to become a professional  pool supervisor.

Although this diploma is recognized for safety and rescue, it does not teach children or adults how to swim. Indeed, there is no learning and no practice to teach swimming skills. In fact, this diploma does not train on Pedagogic theories, technical aspects on the transmission of knowledge.

This is why many lifeguards complete their training in France.

First, the diploma and training course in France is longer and more complete.
