Students need to swim 100 yards of freestyle (crawlstroke), 100 yards of  breaststroke, and an additional 100 yards of freestyle. Swimming on their back or side is not allowed. Goggles may be used for the 300 yard swim.

Treading Water: Students must be able to tread water for 2 minutes using only their legs. Students must place their hands under the armpits and keep their heads above the water.

Brick Retrieval: Starting in the water, students must swim 20-yards using freestyle (crawlstroke) or breaststroke, dive 12 feet, retrieve a 10-pound dive brick, return to the surface, swim 20-yards on their back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the brick and exit the pool without using a ladder or steps. Must be completed within 1 minute and 40 seconds. Swim goggles are not allowed. Candidates should not swim the return distance underwater.

The prerequisite skills test is to determine whether students have the overall strength, endurance and comfort in the water that is necessary to successfully participate & pass the course.
