ISR Instructor Training Program

Are you thinking about joining the Infant Swimming Resource Team by becoming an ISR Instructor, but you’re having a difficult time determining what the cost would be? We can help!

Making the decision to become an independent ISR business owner, by becoming a Certified Infant Swimming Resource Instructor, is a significant one and of course, cost is a principal consideration. While a short dollar figure would be certainly be easier, the truth is, the cost to become an ISR Instructor varies, and is solely dependent on each individual approved ISR Instructor candidate. Below, you’ll find the general pricing structures which cover more than 95% of all ISR Instructor training certifications.

ISR Pay It Forward Scholarship for ISR Instructor Training

“I have owners/managers from many private and public pools in River Falls and surrounding communities who beg me to teach lessons at their facilities. Currently, I teach from my private pool and a public pool at my hometown 20 minutes away. I could teach 24/7/365 and still not reach all of the interested families.”
-Missy L. ISR Instructor River Falls, WI 04/2017

Infant Swimming Resource, in 2012, launched the ISR Pay It Forward Scholarship in an effort to remove any barrier preventing our next great ISR Instructor from joining our team and bringing access to ISR lessons to families in communities without adequate access to what is widely recognized as the world’s safest most effective survival swimming lessons for infants and young children. Similarly, community service has been a cornerstone of ISR’s culture since it’s inception in 1966, and it is our ultimate goal to see the day when no family is turned away from ISR lessons for their little ones based on their ability to pay. Combining these two elements, Infant Swimming Resource created a structure whereby approved recipients of the ISR Pay It Forward Scholarship would pay a reduced fee of $8,000.00 USD to become ISR Instructors and independent business owners, in exchange for their commitment to, within 24 months of being certified, provide free lessons to 10 children whose families qualify for the program on account of being unable to afford ISR lessons or being active duty military/first responders.

ISR Financing: An In-house Flexible Solution

As you might imagine, we talk with our colleagues each day, and more and more we were hearing that the cost of becoming an ISR Instructor nearly prevented some of our most valued ISR Instructors from ever realizing their goal of owning their own business while making a difference with ISR. Realizing that investments in human capital, like college tuition or post graduate studies, were converging to create a formidable barrier to entry for great ISR Instructors, led Infant Swimming Resource to launch its own in-house finance department in 2014.The ISR Financing department is wholly owned and funded by ISR, which means our teammates have a significant amount of flexibility in the approval and application process with our ultimate goal being to see the best candidates become the next successful ISR Instructor. While ISR Financing products cannot be combined with the ISR Pay It Forward Scholarship, each package features a fee-simple, fixed rate, 24-month terms with as little as 30% down, and best of all, no damaging hard credit checks in our online application process! Applicants interested in ISR Financing are invited to inquire with the ISR Careers Team for more information.
