    The FBI clearance is the one with the fingerprints, and is the expensive one. The other 2 are good for 2 years from the state.

    I wish! I was told last Sept. that I have to get them every year. I don't know why I have to get the annually when the law says every 3 years ... A true PITA. And again, why should you have to get them for an adult swim class?!

    Thanks Jennifer. It is definitely not cheap to get all the certifications, especially every year.

    Next thing you know, they'll require masters swimmers to get cleared to swim at the same time as Age Groupers.
    Can't you just have Carter or Stacey sub for you while they're already on deck? Or have a masters swimmer stay on deck for a set or two and swithch off?
    Lately it seems that Carter and Stacey are not both there for the age group practice, just one of them.

    No, having masters swimmers on deck without certifications does not work. I got in trouble while in Paris for having Jim Skirboll on deck, a coach who likely has the qualifications, because they weren't on file with Pitt. So I have no idea what I'm going to do for the summer. Bill White, who subbed for me last summer, doesn't have the qualifications either.
