Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

In addition to the on-going funding of courses for officials and the 25% subsidy for CPDs required for clubs to achieve or maintain SwimMark accreditation, Swim England Hertfordshire Management Board has been able to re-introduce some funding for ASA level 1, level 2 and level 3 coaching courses (or their equivalent level).

The following conditions should be noted:

  • The funding for officials’ courses is not subject to any SwimMark criteria and room hire costs will be covered.
  • For CPD subsidies, clubs must be SwimMark accredited or accepted by East Region as actively working towards SwimMark accreditation at the time of claim submission.
