Taking my NPLQ course next week.
Wondering if anyone has done already and can offer some info?
I can swim 150m on my front, have to rest afterwards before going again.
I can also swim 50m in 50 seconds.
Is this sufficient to pass the course?
How far will they make you swim in the actual course? Someone told me they do 200m warmups.

When I did mine it was:
20/20 - 65 Seconds (So Swim 20 metres, rescue your casualty and tow them back another 20 metres)
20/10 - 45 Seconds (Swim 20 metres, and get them back and to the side after 10 metres)
20/20 - 65 Seconds (with a torpedo bouy) (Swim 20 metres, rescue them with the bouy and then swim 20 metres back towing your casualty.)
You do the swims one after another, there isn't a rest break in between, maybe a minute or so depending on how many people are doing the course and how many assessors.
