Basic Swimming Test

From ARRSEpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A simple test of your ability to float.

Note this will occur naturally in water, unless you start flapping your arms and legs in an uncoordinated fashion and start to drink it.

More seriously it involves a couple of lengths of the pool, a short period of treading water and then heaving yourself out of the deep end.

IF YOU CAN'T SWIM, INFORM THE PTI BEFORE YOU JUMP IN.
