Matthew Johnson 
Certified ISR Instructor

I grew up spending every day of my young summers in Central Florida swimming in pools or weekends at the beach with my friends and family.  I realized at a very early age how fun and how dangerous water can be.  It was no surprise when I found out that drowning is the 2nd leading cause of unintentional death among children under the age of 5*.  My wife and I found ISR for our child when she was just a year old when we moved to Mobile, Alabama.  

In JUNE of 2018, I became a Certified Instructor for ISR!!  An ISR instructor was one of the most challenging and rigorous course studies that I have ever undertaken. The ISR Instructor training program is an 6-week process comprised of over 60 hours of in-water training, over 10 hours of video review, and countless hours of academic study and testing in subjects such as child psychology, physiology and behavioral science.  

I must undergo annual reviews and re-certifications to ensure my skills and techniques continue to meet the highest ISR standards.  I am also certified in CPR and first-aid and hold insurance policies to protect my students.
