Want to learn how to be an effective manager in a rescue situation?
This one-day course teaches divers how to manage the
resources at their disposal in order to make the most
effective use of them in a rescue situation. Although the
emphasis is on the development of rescue management skills,
the course also provides an opportunity for further
instruction in personal rescue skills.
This course involves hypothetical scenarios to practice and test your management skills. It helps divers avoid pitfalls that untrained divers can fall into in a rescue situation.
This course is open to North Glos BSAC Sports Divers
