Simulated Diver Rescue on The Surface

We are in Maple Bay, BC just a few kilometers from Duncan and home of Pacific Water Sports in the Cowichan Valley, training is controlled area just off the dock. One of the keys to becoming an outstanding rescue diver or rescue diver instructor is repetive practice with rescue skills. With our instructor student here we are practicing a rescue scenario which is part of the PADI OWSI instructor training course. Instructor candiates practice this and many other diving compontents many, many times before they are finally evaluated by a PADI examiner and upon successful completing to the evaluation will become a PADI Instructor. 

Other components include learning how to teach the Rescue Diver Course Knowledge sessions, confined water sessions and open water sessions.
