Swim Transition

Swim Transition Instructor Clinic

The Swim Transition Instructor Clinic is designed exclusively for Canadian Red Cross Water Safety Instructors who want to take advantage of the opportunity to transition to Lifesaving Society Swim for Life Instructor status.

Red Cross Water Safety Instructors and Trainers who want to transition to the Lifesaving Society’s Swim for Life certification may now do so by completing the online self-directed Swim Transition Instructor Clinic at e-lifesaving.ca or e-sauvetage.ca.

This is the official Swim Transition Instructor Clinic approved by the Lifesaving Society Canada and endorsed by the Canadian Red Cross.

To register and complete the course you will need a credit card and approximately two hours. There is no charge for the clinic and no certification fee. However, as part of enrollment, candidates purchase the Lifesaving Society’s Swim for Life Award Guide – the required reference for teaching the Swim for Life programs. A digital version is included and available upon enrollment.

Completion of this online clinic is one of two required steps to becoming a certified Lifesaving Society Swim for Life Instructor. The other step is to ensure the Lifesaving Society has your Canadian Red Cross Water Safety qualifications. If you have not already done so, log in to your My Red Cross account to initiate this transfer.

Welcome to Swim for Life!

This transition path ends December 31, 2022.
