Canadian Clearance Diver Course, 2015
In 2015, we had the privilege of overseeing the physical training of the Canadian Forces Clearance Diver course. Our goal was to drastically improve their swimming ability, reduce the rate of injury, and maintain mental acuity and health throughout this grueling 12 month course .
The bench mark swim was a 1km open-water fin-swim in under 14minutes. On average, only 1 student every 2 years meets this standard and is included on the unit plaque.
By the end of the course, 7 out of 11 students met the sub-14 minute standard and the other 4 were all under 14:30min. One student broke the unit record at 12:52min.
