UWE and Ocean Quest Dive centre have 5 new Rescue Divers. Lisa, Roland, Travis, Mike and V|ivienne just completed their Rescue, EFR and O2 Provider courses this weekend past. Well done to everyone. The Course started on the 15 the of Jan. We started off with two classroom nights, where we reviewed the knowledge reviews. The third night we were working on the EFR course, and the O2 Provider.
The ocean phase, we a long couple of days with such a large class, and water temps
were about 3 degrees so it was a challenging day of training. We started the Ocean day learning how to do self rescue and how to keep our selves safe in the event there was something that was going wrong while in the water. From there, we practiced response from ashore, panicked diver and tired diver. My personal favourite is the missing diver so I get to see the students use of compass. Everyone by the way went well!!
On the second Ocean day, I got to see the students using the skills they learned from the EFR course. Once we got the casualty to the beach everyone successfully started CPR and and then they deployed Oxygen. I heard many of the students say that it was a lot more difficult then they thought it would was going to be.
Well done, to all our students. Everyone showed up ready to play and did an excellent job completing their Rescue, EFR and O2 Provider course. Next step is the Dive Master course, looking forward to seeing you out there.
The course is a 4 hour classroom practical session where we go over the various maladies that Oxygen can help improve the casualties condition. We discuss in depth Lung Over expansion injuries and Decompression Sickness, and how oxygen can help. This is a very informative class, and overall we try to make a fun but educational at the same time.
Great work guys, and congratulations on becoming PADI Emergency Oxygen Providers!!
