DDRC and SDI are proud to announce that DDRC will now be able to offer SDI certification for CPR, First Aid, Oxygen Admin and AED training courses. The combination of these two organisations means that divers will be able to receive training from the UK’s leading hyperbaric research and treatment charity, while receiving certification from one of the world’s leading diving agencies.
Divers taking the DDRC Diving Accident Responder Course (DARC) will be able to benefit from receiving training from world class diving doctors and trainers. They will then be able to receive certifications from SDI and gain recognition for their training. This certification can be recognised as part of their ongoing training towards Advanced Diver, Divemaster or even Open Water Instructor.
DDRC trainers recently completed a crossover course to SDI non-diving speciality instructors with SDI/TDI Instructor Trainer Mark Powell. “DDRC has the perfect candidates for the SDI non-diving speciality instructor. This unique scheme allows SDI to make use of the world’s leading experts to deliver non-diving speciality courses. Who better to train divers on what to do in a diving accident than DDRC and we are very proud to have DDRC as an SDI training facility”.
Jon Parlour, Training Officer at DDRC said, “We are very happy to be working with SDI on our DARC course. We were impressed with the structure of the SDI course and material, as well as their training philosophy and are hoping to be running additional SDI/TDI courses in the future.”
