Be prepared for swim test:
300-yard continuous swim using the front crawl, breaststroke or combination of both without stopping to rest. Must swim with face in the water and demonstrate breath control.
Tread water for 2 minutes without supports or stopping. When treading, only the legs can be used. Candidates should place hands under the armpits. The head must remain above the surface of the water.
Starting in the water, swim 20 yards. Surface dive and retrieve a 10-pound object from the bottom. Return to the surface and swim 20 yards to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object and keeping the face at or near the surface so you are able to get a breath. Exit the water without using a ladder or steps.
