You can call this number: 65498041. I advice you to avoid lunch hours(1200-1400). Good luck!

From what I know, there'll be a few tests throughout the 4 month traning, including foundation and first aid. The standard is 80% for a pass.

Hi!

Thought I should share my experience when I did my jump in early January. We were told to change into our swimming costumes (bikini, tankini, full body suit acceptable) and after we put on our life-vest, we were lined up in the mockup plane and told to jump individually. Some pointers that you might find useful..

1) Just don't hesitate to jump - it'll be over very soon, serious! But DO cross your arms across your lifevest when you jump in so that it doesn't fly out at the impact.

2) When you jump down, you will sink BUT only for a mere one or two seconds. Do not panic! When you get to the surface, turn and face the mockup and start swimming backwards. I don't know if it's a must to swim backstroke but what I did was to just kick my legs and use my hands to propel me backwards. Just get yourself to the end of the pool and at the same time, watch out where you are heading!

3) Goggles is optional but during my water confidence interview, I don't recall any girl wearing them. I wear contact lens too but it did not affect me much. Wear waterproof mascara too - you wouldn't want to look like a wreck too huh?

Hope it's useful to those going for the water confidence interview in the near future! All the best!



Hi Plyn,

Thanks for this valuable advice. After we get out fromt he pool, do we remove the life jacket for them to check our body for scars or tatoos?


hi :)

Yes of course you have to remove your lifejacket so that they can check for scars or tattoos. If you are able to conceal your tattoos/scars, I think it shouldn't be a problem.

last but not least, sorry for being so long-winded. i understand we guys goes thru 2 stages less than girls, but is it true they really need stewards that much to the extend where they even open up to people with tattoos too or even conversate in a shy manner? it seems like those who got kicked out are really those who are really introvote as in really sit all by themself instead of mixing around, and the amount been kicked out so far , i would say out of 30, only 1 or 2 was kicked out since day 2


Hi Simpleboi

which are the 2 stages guys do not need to go through. I know one of them is kebaya fitting, the other one? :)
