In 2018 the Oklahoma Swim Academy founder, Megan Bachman, became a Master Instructor through the Survival Swim Development Network. Her extensive experience and training qualifies her to train and certify new swim instructors wanting to join the SSDN and teach on their own (outside of OSA). This national organization is a community of like-minded instructors that believe every child should be given the ability to save themselves in water through a gentle and child-centered approach.
Our certification course is comprised of 6 weeks of hands-on training. This is supplemented with studying and testing in the areas of anatomy, child development, and behavioral psychology. Trainees will be educated in business strategies; from business planning to marketing to pricing structures. They will also be exposed to various systems and software that OSA uses to run our swim school. Megan will remain available for mentorship after the training is over as the newly certified instructor starts their new business. This training process is very intensive and a financial commitment, so it has been designed specifically for candidates that are considering survival swim instruction as a career.
