ISA Water Safety Course Overview

The ISA requires that all certified instructors hold a valid, recognized water safety certification. This is to ensure that an instructor has the skills and knowledge necessary to provide emergency care and ensure water safety during a lesson. The ISA Water Safety Course is specific to Surf and SUP Instructors and its contents are outlined below:

Course Components

The ISA Surf and SUP Instructor Aquatic Rescue and Safety Course includes both theory and practical components as well as group discussions and group activities.

  • The theory components include a PowerPoint Presentation and Participant Workbook.

  • The practical components include basic water/surf skills, completing patient rescues using a board, performing basic first aid, performing basic CPR and emergency care techniques and successfully completing a basic fitness test.

    The Basic Surf Fitness Test will be as a minimum the following

  • 100m run

  • Negotiation of the inner surf zone with a swim of at least 100m through the surf and impact zone

  • 100m run

    This is to be done showing surf skill competency and within a 5 minute time frame. It is based on small to moderate surf conditions. A Course Presenter may extend the course of the Basic Fitness Test, in which case, the time frame might also be adjusted, depending on conditions.
