Fundamentals of diving will be introduced. Development of personal survival knowledge will continue with a situational context of swimming quickly away from a sinking boat. Students will be required to demonstrate efficient stroke techniques by swimming a variety of strokes over 200 metres within a given time frame.

Dive entry (crouching)

1 Backward somersault in the water
2 Scull, float or tread whilst putting on a PFD in water (incorporated in Survival & Activity Skills)


Swim :
1 50m Front Crawl (within 1:30 min)
2 50m Breaststroke (within 1:50 min)
3 50m Backstroke (within 1:40 min)
4 25m Survival Backstroke
