Now with Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver!

July 3rd, 2009 | Posted by NK in Denmark

Last week was really busy.

First the Emergency First Response (EFR) course Thursday and then Rescue Diver theory for 5 hours Friday evening.
Before that I had the joy of reading the Rescue Diver book – a really interesting book full of good examples.
The theory exam wasn’t that difficult, probably because our instructor Michael Jensen was really great and  I did spend a lot of time reading the book (full day)…

Saturday and Sunday was booked for in-water exercises in the nice cold Danish water. I guess picking a weekend in the end of June was a good choice by me, because it was full sun and 26C, so I did in fact manage to sunburned in the forehead and on the nose (no shock) and with a 7mm wetsuit the was was nice…  but ALSO because  there was a lot to do in the exercises – in was far from the usually concept of lazy diving to not spend too much air…
The exercises was great fun, but also somewhat hard (at least) and I’m looking forward to do some extra practicing in some of the areas – I guess this Rescue Diver is just like getting a drivers license – then you’re ready to learn, but the big difference is that you dont really hope to get the posibility to try your Rescue Diver skills (that would mean that somebody is in serious problems..).
Anyway I’m very happy that I did take the Rescue Diver course and I do feel good about getting to know about this – it might come in handy one day..

And in the end of the last day we did a bit of fundiving on a small wreck called U3…
