Tread water for 3 minutes using only the legs. Candidates should place their hands under the armpits.

Surface dive, feet first or head first to a depth of 6-10 feet to retrieve a 10-pound object. Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on the back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object and keeping the face at or near the surface so they are able to get a breath. Candidates should not swim the distance underwater. Exit the water without using a ladder or stairs.
