Training for BSA Swimming & Water Rescue provides BSA leaders with information and skills to prevent, recognize, and respond to swimming emergencies during unit swimming activities. It expands the awareness instruction provided by Safe Swim Defense training. Persons completing the training should be better able to assess their preparation to supervise unit swimming events. The BSA recommends that at least one person with this training is present to assist with supervision whenever a unit swims at a location that does not provide lifeguards. This training is open to any registered adult leader, Scout, Venturer, or Explorer who is age 15 or older. A council approved instructor must directly supervise all training. The course is valid for three years.

Although the training is consistent with training provided to professional lifeguards, the Swimming & Water Rescue course is not a lifeguard training course and is not a substitute for BSA Lifeguard training. First aid training is not included in the Swimming & Water Rescue course with the expectation the leader has addressed this need separately, as noted in the course material and on the training card.
