The Halliwick AST Foundation Course is the basic course in the Halliwick Concept, consisting of 4 days’ training (or its equivalent in hours), and includes both theory and pool work. Most courses are held over 2 weekends, but it is possible to run courses over a block of 4-day or over a series of evenings, if lecturers are available.

The aim of days 1 & 2 of training is to enable instructors to have a knowledge of and practice a concept of teaching people of all ages with special needs to be as competent and independent as possible in the water.

The aim of days 3 & 4 of training is to consolidate knowledge and practice gained over the first 2-days and to devise, plan and record groups and games to promote swimmer’s progress.

On completion of the Halliwick AST Foundation Course, a Certificate of Attendance is awarded.

To gain a Certificate of Competence (the Halliwick Instructor’s Certificate – HIC) the candidate must complete (after the Course) a minimum of 35 hours experience working with disabled swimmers and successfully complete an assessment.  Further information about this will be given on the Foundation Course you attend. (There may be expenses/a fee involved.)
