Do you need to know how to swim in the australian army?

Yes. Everyone does the Army Swim Test both at Kapooka and before deployments. I don't remember the exact details, but you swim roughly a lap before "treading water" for two minutes - all while dressed in cams, which makes it slightly harder. It's something you need to pass. I've known Reservists who cannot swim and marched out of recruit training anyway, including a Warrant Officer 2 with decades of service. However, when we had to do a swim test prior to a trip to Solomon Islands, the WO2 couldn't pass and was quietly dropped from the contingent. Knowing how to swim beforehand will definitely save you a lot of heartache. If you're seriously considering a career in the ADF, I recommend you take lessons if you don't already know how to swim.

Yep sure do! Head off to local pool now & get some lessons. You will end up needing to swim in full camo.
