    Water Safety Instructors Manual Rev. 04/14 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a binder The manual itself is great! But Red Cross does not send a binder to put it in. When you order the manual, it is packaged as individual sheets with tabs and it's up to you to go out and buy a binder. Not that this was a deal breaker but the Red Cross provides a binder for the LGI manual so I think they should do the same for the WSI manual.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Information what i wanted. Parts of desc. omitted. The manual includes the information i wanted, well organized. This comes as hole punched sheets with chapter dividers. You will need to get a binder to put them in. (Was not a big deal, just didn't catch that point in description.) The description said that is comes with sample achievement booklet and card. These items did not come with the manual sent to me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Resource! Curious if ARC would consider making a CD of the Instructor's Manual or putting the manual in a .pdf, in addition to the full hard copy version. It would be extremely helpful to have an automated version of the Instructor's Manual for lesson planning, especially with regard to quick look-up access for teaching skills and development.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Teaching Tool I bought the Water Safety Instructor Handbook last month and find it so valuable for preparing my lesson plans. All guidelines and tests to advance are included. So happy to have it! One surprise of this purchase--- it does not come bound so you need to provide a binder to make it useable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Read I took a position this to manage our local pool where we teach swimming lessons. The lifeguards needed a guide to help break down the steps and lessons of teaching and that is exactly what this manual does. Plus it gets into teaching adults as well.
