History & Training ISR instructors

“It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.”- Ann Landers


Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) is a nationally recognized system of survival swimming instruction for infants and young children. The program focuses on educating parents and children about drowning prevention and safety issues. Our Goal is to see a day when "Not One More Child Drowns."

ISR is the product of nearly 60 years of research and development by Dr. Harvey Barnett. ISR instructors have delivered over 19 million ISR Self-Rescue lessons which have saved more than 800 lives.

When it comes to your child, you always look for the most qualified, caring Instructors. Infant Swimming Resource is no different. Beyond sharing a devotion to child safety, each Instructor is highly trained and certified to teach Infant Swimming Resource's (ISR) Self-Rescue method. Each certified ISR Instructor completes a rigorous 8-week in-water and academic training course and participates in a highly specialized annual recertification to maintain the highest level of safety and caliber of instruction.

Remember, The Sooner, The Safer!
