    Basic Orientation and BCT

    I have found much on what kind of swimming evolutions SWCC does. I was wondering if they also have to drownproof and do alot of the same stuff as the SEALS? And do they also do alot of work with the fins?

    No SWCC don't have to perform the drown proofing evolution but they do train with fins. We have many similar water evolutions, none of which are
    diving specific, however. One evolution you should be training to is tread water drills in a controlled safe environment. Always have a qualified life guard nearby to assist you if needed.

    Just to be clear, SWCC do NOT have to complete the training with hands and feet bound or many of the other water drills associated with drown proofing? Sorry for the redundancy just trying to be clear.

    You are correct. SWCC candidates are in the water often and they have their own training, but it is not drownproofing.
