“As a swim school owner/instructor with 30 years of experience, why would I choose to invest in Infant Aquatics℠ Instructor Training at SWIM•Float•SWIM!℠ with Judy Heumann? Having a well-established swim school of my own and teaching the swim-float-swim method for many years, I am passionate about teaching kids to be safe in and around the water. However, I always felt there was something missing in my technique to help very young children and infants stay safe.

In my teaching experience, it was rare to have a child learn the life-saving rotation and float before the age of three years, but with Judy’s training, I’ve now mastered teaching survival skills to infants and toddlers! With older children, the life-saving skill of “fall-in, float, then SWIM•Float•SWIM!℠ is achieved in half the time, now that I have this training under my belt! With Judy’s training, I’m able to give kids a stronger foundation, my skills have improved tremendously, and I’m seeing faster results.

The cost of this extra training was definitely worth it. The knowledge gained in this program has changed my whole game plan, proving that you can teach an old swim-dog new tricks! Judy’s ongoing support has been a lifesaver too!!

In the training, be at ease if Judy puts you with another training buddy. This helps balance the learning process because it allows you to be able to learn together and help one another. Most trainees have become life long friends!! You develop a strong bond going through this exceptional 6 week training! It meant the world to me to have accomplished so much in so little time and to actually be applying the skills I’ve learned to be more effective in the swim world!!

It was Judy’s training that bridged the gap for me & strengthened my programs all-around. I only regret not doing this sooner!”
