On January 21, 2023, USNSCC 9-1-1 Division hosted swim qualifications for their cadets. Cadets had an opportunity to practice and take the test for Basic Swimmer, Third Class Swimmer, Second Class Swimmer, and First Class Swimmer.
Such qualification is required for certain advanced training and would ensure that cadets don’t get held back on the experience.
What kind of training requires a Swim Qualifications prerequisite? Specific STEM trainings require a basic swimmer qualification. All SWCC training requires First Class certification. Besides that, all water-based courses would require some swimming qualifications.
