It’s that time of year again where we’re looking forward to another great diving season. Once again we’re hoping that service divers will continue to come and help us out by acting as either guest or rescue divers during our various courses. If you are interested, then please get in touch with Mr Graeme Crouch on 9375 54729 or [email protected]
The dates below are when we require people.
We need Sport divers and above to act as rescue divers on each Ocean Diver course that we run:
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-01 – 8th – 12th April
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-02 – 15th – 19th Apr
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-03 – 10th – 14th Jun
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-04 – 5th – 9th Aug
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-05 – 12th – 16th Aug
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-06 – 30th Sep – 4th Oct
Ocean Diver Course ODC 19-07 – 14th – 18th Oct
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. If you cannot make either the Monday or Tuesday please let us know at the earliest opportunity as we can then look to do all this on either the Monday or Tuesday. If you have already completed the paper work and pool dive with us there is no requirement for you to come down and rescue dive until the Wednesday of the course, we look to do 5 open water dives 2 on the Wednesday, 2 on the Thursday and then a depth progression on the Friday if the weather is good (normally on HMS Scylla).
As part of the BSADS course and ESADS assessment, we need to give the students the opportunity to plan and manage diving with realistic numbers of divers. This provides a great opportunity for individuals to come along and enjoy a few days diving whilst also gaining the opportunity to see what these courses are all about.
