Students will be required to perform a variety of strokes with efficiency over 400 metres within a given time frame for each stroke. Personal survival skills like making use of clothing to make a personal floatation device and swimming with them, putting on a life jacket in water and demonstrating the Heat Escape Lessening Posture technique will be taught.

1 Standing dive

1 Scull, float or tread for whilst making a self-made float within 5 min (incorporated in Survival & Activity Skills)

1 In at least 1.8m deep water, perform head-first surface dive (tuck or pike) and perform ear equalisation, if necessary and swim through hoops on pool bottom for 5m
Swim :
1 100m Front Crawl (within 3:00 min)
2 100m Breaststroke (within 4:00 min)
3 100 m Backstroke (within 3:20 min)
4 50m Survival Backstroke
5 50m Sidestroke
6 15m Butterfly
Dressed in swimwear, long pants and t-shirt demonstrate the following sequence :
1 Enter deep water using a compact jump
2 Perform a head-first surface dive to a depth of at least 1.8m (and perform ear equalisation, if necessary)
3 Swim through hoops on pool bottom for 5m and resurface
4 Swim 45m quickly using front crawl
5 Then, swim slowly for a further 50m
