Generic Course Information: 

The course covers everything that you need to know to pass the exam. Please note that swimming is not taught. You should be doing your own swim training to enable you to pass the 400 meter pool swim in 9 minutes and the 200 meter run swim run at the beach on the day of the exam.  The time for this is 8 minutes.  For non-confident swimmers we do offer a Patrol Support option where no swimming is required.  You would participate in all other course work and activities.  Please indicate on your entry form if this is of interest to you.
