Open Water Swimsafer


Commanding the swimming pool is one thing,
but conquering the open water is a totally different scenario.


What is SwimSafer Open Water?

SwimSafer Open Water is a new module of the national water safety programme known as SwimSafer. This module teaches you the proper swimming techniques and survival skills in the open water. Upon completion of this module, you will be more educated on the risks and dangers in open water compared to the swimming pool.


Why Should I Enrol in This Module?

The main purpose of this module is to reduce the risk of drowning in open waters.  Majority of drowning occurs in the open water. The reason is that the open water is much more unpredictable and harsher compared to the usual swimming pools. By enrolling yourself or your child into this module, you will be equipped with the necessary survival skills, which can potentially save your life or that of someone else. Furthermore, you will be taught in a real life environment and not a simulated one in order to enhance your learning experience.


Who is SwimSafer Open Water For?

SwimSafer Open Water is for any Singaporeans (children or adults) who are water sports enthusiasts and/or anyone keen in learning open water survival skills.


What are the Pre-requisites Required Before Enrolling?
