What are the requirements?

There is an e-learning interactive program that lets you learn at your own pace. Your instructor will schedule your review session and rescue exercises.

What equipment is needed?

Basic SCUBA equipment is required. You will work with floats, marker buoys and CPR mannequins during rescue exercises. Your instructor may suggest additional gear such as your own first aid kit and a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation.
