Default Is Swimming Necessary to Join Indian Navy

Hello sir I am here as I want to know is Swimming Necessary to Join Indian Navy as I don’t know Swimming????

Hie!!! As per my knowledge swimming is Necessary to Join Indian Navy Since swimming is an essential requirement for serving on navy ships at sea - those who do not qualify the swimming test are held back/relegated in the training academy till such time they pass the swimming test.

The basic swimming test consists of swimming 50 m (any stroke) followed by floating for three minutes while wearing a full sleeve shirt and a pair of trousers.

The trainees are also required to clear various advanced swimming tests during the course of the training, details of which would be intimated to the trainee on arrival.

Other outdoor activities of important part of the curriculum of Indian Navy are:

Physical Training (PT).

The PET standards expected to be passed are as follows: -

(a) 2.5 km run Less than 12:00 Minutes

(b) Bent knee sit ups 25 repetitions

(c) Push ups 21 repetitions

(d) Chin Ups 04 repetitions

(e) 100 m sprint 15 sec

(f) Swimming Test 50 m (Breast Stroke), 03:00 min floating, 5m Jump. To be passed by the 3rd semester.

Watermanship Training (WST)

Watermanship activities include:-

(i) Pulling/sailing training in 27 feet service whaler boat (rowing and sailing boat).

(ii) Sailing (yachting) in Enterprise Class dinghy (sailboat).

(iii) Power boat handling.

Drill & Small Arms Training

Drill is the bedrock of discipline. Instructions in squad drill, as part of a contingent, are imparted from the beginning of the course till completion. Rifle and sword drill form an integral part of parade training.

Trainees are also taught how to lead a contingent/ squad. Small Arms training are an integral part of the training curriculum.

During the course, the trainees would proceed for an outdoor camp of four days duration. During the camp, trainee would be acquainted with aspects of map reading, land fighting and survival in hostile terrain as well as long distance sailing.
