ATSPRA is a supervision and rescue qualification for therapists, teachers, and support staff working on the poolside or in the water during activities (such as aquatic therapy or therapeutic exercise/play). The qualification is suitable for use in shallow pools (where a rescuer would not need to swim to perform a rescue) with water no deeper than the rescuers' chest depth.
