All of our instructors are Red Cross CPR, AED, First Aid, and Lifeguard Certified.  New instructors must complete the DuPage Swimming Center’s training program and apprentice for at least 80-100 hours prior to teaching independently.  All instructors are consistently evaluated on teaching skills and performance to ensure that they utilize the most effective and current teaching methods.
