Your intuition is correct. BSA Aquatics Instructor is the highest level
of training, achievement, and recognition in Scouting aquatics.
Certification as an Aquatics Instructor is given by the National
Organization (BSA) upon satisfactory completion of the acquatics section
of the acquatics section program conducted at a National Camping School.
This certification can be earned by an 18 year old, but will not allow
the individual to serve as an aquatics director at a BSA facility until
the person has reached the age of 21. This certification is limited to
five years and may be renewed by subsequent National Camping School
certification, participation on the Camping School staff (certified by
the director), or by completing a three-day BSA Aquatics Instructor
recertification course under the auspices of the National Camping School.
This information was taken from BSA's 1993 Health and Safety Guide.
