Our newest instructor, LPT Baz Chambers, sent out the email below today to everyone we think might be interested in diving with us as a guest or rescue diver:
My name is Baz Chambers and I have just joined JSSADC and am the Royal Navy PTI Diving instructor which has been gapped for some time.
As Benny will be departing the centre this week I will be taking on the roll as Rescue / Guest Diver Coordinator. I have listed this years Ocean Divers Courses below which we will be requiring rescue divers for if you could please check your diaries and inform me of your possible availability dates during this time to help us out here at JSSADC. I will send out a similar email each month.
If you would like to help out and have not rescue dived with us before you would need to come in and complete some paper work on the Monday of the course and then on the Tuesday take part in some skills and drills in the pool at HMS Raleigh along with diving with a 3ltr pony as a alternate independent air source.
