SCUBA / Swimming

Introduction to Scuba SEP

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Introduction to Scuba will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the  Introduction to Scuba experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Introduction to Scuba program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

This will be an introductory session into the world of scuba diving! The syllabus includes:

  • Equipment familiarization
  • Snorkeling
  • Basic underwater skills
  • Equipment assembly
  • Regulator recovery
  • Alternate air source stationary
  • Mask removal & replacement
  • Fin pivot (neutral buoyancy)
  • Hovering
  • Underwater Exploration

Duration: 1 Session of 6 Hours

SwimSafer Bronze (Stage 4) , Silver (Stage 5), Gold(Stage 6)

SwimSafer is a national water safety programme in Singapore introduced in July 2010 by the National Water Safety Council (NWSC), a council appointed by the then Ministry of Community, Youth and Sports (MCYS).

In 2013, NWSC transferred full ownership of SwimSafer to Sport Singapore. In 2014 Manulife extended their sponsorship to Sport Singapore to promote SwimSafer for 3 years.

The SwimSafer programme consists of six progressive stages, each comprising 12 hours of lesson time. Survival and activity skills are taught in each stage of the programme, working progressively toward the next stage.

At the end of each stage, each child will receive a stage completion certificate indicating his/ her individual skill achievements. A badge will be awarded upon the completion of each stage.

In addition, each child will be awarded a coloured pin upon completion of each stage 4 to 6. Currently, the Singapore Lifesaving Society (SLSS) acts as SwimSafers’ Secretariat, dealing with matters of assessment administrations.

The programme aims to teach swimming proficiency and water survival skills to children to minimize drowning incidences in a fun manner. These skills are necessary in view that more than 60% of drowning incidences in Singapore (from 2005 to 2008) occurred in open waters, such as the seas, rivers and reservoirs.
