The SwimSafer 2.0 syllabus is designed to be a stranded testing system. The learner do not have to hold a pre-requisite certification in order to attend the higher test stages. For example, the learner is not required to attend SwimSafer Stage 1 before he/she attends Swimsafer Stage 2. All test levels are independent and certified coaches can send their kids to either level which they deem suitable.
