It would be hard to imagine why a swimming assessment was no longer considered necessary.

Yes there is. If you're not a strong swimmer, get some lessons. CTC expect all recruits to be able to swim.

To follow on from this advice, if you check the current breakdown of training you'll see in ROP you will have 6 swimming sessions in the first 4 weeks.
