Every six months, all our dive guides and boat crew get a quick refresher course of the most important EFR skills. Regular training ensures that everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency – but hopefully we will never need those skills in real life.
CPR, Oxygen Administration, First Aid for hazardous marine life injuries or serious bleeding management, it all sounds totally boring. Why not make the EFR staff training fun instead?
After a quick demonstration, all of our dive staff gets to practice on one of the two manikins. Chest compressions become easy when using the right technique and even our engineers get curious and want to have a go! Rescue breaths with and without a pocket mask, easily done when helping and correcting each other.
Last but not least, we run through different scenarios and which setup to use to provide emergency oxygen. The boys enjoy the role plays, volunteer as victims and after no more than an hour all our EFR skills are fresh and sharp again!
