A four-week, one hour per week online course delivered via Zoom in collaboration with Steve Bowens from H2O Training and Norma MacLeod from Immerse Hebrides.
You will learn about tides, weather, currents, personal safety, and forecasting, and use any practical knowledge during the course. There are some simple research tasks between some sessions that can be done from home (not mandatory). You will be invited to share your findings in a closed Facebook group to get feedback and additional information and slides will be provided via the group or via email.

**Ideal for:
This course is suitable for all sea swimmer levels or anyone new to sea swimming and looking to deepen their knowledge. Any experience of sea swimming will help you apply the topics learnt.

• Tides
• Wind and weather
• Rips
• Equipment

The seminars are run for one hour over four weeks. Each session will be recorded and available to view for one week after, so if you miss a session you can catch up in your own time.

**Recommended courses upon completion:
We recommend course 2 Safer Sea Swimming or Course 2

Level: Course 1


The course will run every Monday at the same time each week for four weeks. Recordings are available for ONE WEEK after each session with a link emailed to you the next day. Interaction with the live sessions will be more beneficial due to the live Q&A each week, which offers the opportunity to consolidate your learning on that session.

There will be a short, interactive quiz at the end of some of the sessions through the app Kahoot. You can download this app on a separate device or follow the link we provide you with upon booking and use a separate tab on your computer. Again, not mandatory to participate as a pen & paper will suffice if you are a technophobe.
