Other non-ASA qualifications

Examples of other non-ASA qualifications include those gained overseas, academic qualifications, pre-QCF qualifications and any other qualifications. In order to gain an ASA qualification, learners could apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is a process implemented by the Institute of Swimming, where the qualification held, along with any relevant experience, will contribute towards achievement of an ASA qualification. This is a non guided or tutor led means to gaining a qualification and applicants should read further information on RPL available by clicking here, in order to assess their suitability for this route.
