Denise is a qualified swimming instructor

My experience in aquatics stretches over more than twelve years.  For the six years before I moved to Wivey I was employed by the City of Charleston Recreation Department, South Carolina USA.  I held the following Red Cross certifications: Lifeguard, Lifeguard Instructor, and Water Safety Instructor.  I worked at all four pools the city operates teaching a variety of lessons including one-to-one private lessons, group lessons, summer camp lessons, and school lessons covering a range of ages and abilities from infant to adult, beginner to triathlete technique improvement.  I also provided CPR/AED training to the wider Recreation Department staff.  In 2009 I started developing the instructional programing at the WiveyPool.  I hold an STA Level 2 Swimming Instructor Certification, an ASA Level 1 Coaching Swimming Certification, I am a certified Pool Plant Operator (STA) and a Pool Attendant. Streamlined Swimming Instruction operates in conjunction with Wiveypool.  My STA membership provides me with £10 million pounds of liability insurance.
