Trent Croll has always had a passion for swimming, starting from his early childhood when he first started learning to swim through private lessons himself. When beginning a career in the health and fitness industry Trent decided to become a learn to swim instructor to make his employment prospects more diverse.  Trent soon realised that he revelled in the satisfaction he got from watching children develop confidence and skills in the water and decided that this was the avenue he needed to pursue.

Over his career, Trent has dedicated his learning to water safety and awareness, teaching hundreds of people the skills they need to be safe in and around the water.  Trent firmly believes that all Australians should have swimming and water safety skills and understand the principles and practices of water safety at any age but particularly from the very start of life.

Seeing the advantages of teaching in a private lesson where there are less distractions and more quality time spent on each individual child, Trent started Trent Croll’s Learn to Swim Program, based in Dubbo and available to all regional kids and their families.
