Stress is a major contributor to rescue situations and diving accidents. Through this course you will learn accident prevention, as well as how to handle problem situations if they occur.
The program is about avoiding, recognizing and solving problems on the surface and under water. During the course you will participate in academic and in-water sessions in the pool and in the open water. You will learn the signs of stress, and how to deal with stress in yourself and other divers before the dive, during the dive and after the dive. Also, you will learn about different personality types and the common actions of each type in stressful situations. The skills and techniques you will learn will help you prevent and overcome common stresses associated with diving. You will also learn self aid and buddy aid skills for potentially stressful and/or rescue situations. As a prerequisite for certification you need to have a valid CPR & First Aid certificate.
