Swimming test?

#1
I went to the careers office yesterday to grab some brochures and have a talk with them to see what roles interested me and whatnot. I got the fitness brochure and am really happy with it.

I’m just curious, at any point are you tested on swimming? I’m 20 and I used to be able to swim. I haven’t been swimming for around 8-10 years so I haven’t got a clue if I can still do it! Lol…

If there is a test, then I’ll go down to my local sports centre and practice but if there isn’t I won’t bother.

Thanks in advanced,

Dan

There's a swimming test 2 weeks (correct me if I’m wrong) into Phase 1 Training. You tread water for 2 minutes clothed, then swim 2 lengths (100m) without touching the floor or sides of the pool.
