Downbelow’s Assistant Base Leader, Wellson, was busy yesterday, brining our Boat Captains and Divemaster intern up to speed with Emergency First Response.
Wellson, who is an EFR Instructor on top of being a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, took the 3 students under his wing and trained them for emergencies using the PADI EFR course.
Nearly all of Downbelow’s staff, instructors, drivers, boat captains and office staff, are trained in Emergency First Response, because you never know when and where something might happen.
Divemaster intern Hillary will also soon start on his PADI Emergency Response Diver course, and the EFR course is necessary to gain that qualification.
PADI Course Director Richard Swann was also on the scene to provide the necessary oversight.
