At the Y, we are proud to offer two types of certification programs! Check out the courses below that will allow you to:
- gain the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies.
- gain employment at aquatic centres.
YMCA Swim Program Certification
We are a leader in swim programs! Developed by YMCA Canada in 1906, the YMCA National Aquatic program has helped — and continues to help — generations of Canadians learn how to swim in Ys from coast-to-coast. As a certified YMCA Canada Swim Instructor, you are qualified to teach swimming lessons at Y’s across the country.
Canadian Lifesaving Program
As a provincial and national affiliate to the Lifesaving Society of Canada, we are proud to offer a wide range of Lifesaving and Lifeguarding courses.
