Here at PABS Consulting, we are always grateful to be able to share our knowledge and experience with other Swim Schools.

Our CEO, Julie-ann James recently completed online training with Quest Swimming Club from Virginia, USA. Here is what they had to say:

“My name is Dudley Duncan.  I am a retired competitive swimming coach (51 years) – and owner of Quest Swimming, LLC.  We offer training in competitive swimming and teach “learn to swim” from newborns to gereatric adults.  We recently used Julie-ann’s (AquaBabies Global) instructor training for newborns to toddlers.  We could not have been more satisfied with the improved confidence and practical information we received.  This was accomplished during Covid 19 and a world apart, as Julie-ann was in Australia and we were in Midlothian, VA – USA.  The training was using Zoom and took longer than normal I’m sure; however, Julie-ann’s approach of gradual adaptation and patience for the process of introduction to water elements with a constant focus of helping our instructors, future parents and babies to comfort in aquatic adaptation and movement to actual survival skills was superb.  Julie-ann’s philosophies and ours for learning were well matched; that is, we want to reduce fear and elevate confidence to advance from zero experience to the highest levels of performance one wishes to achieve.  I feel that Julie-ann was Very Much part of our solution as we begin to offer Babies’ adaptation and learning into our programming.”
