Since Technical Diving International (the technical division of International Training) was formed the company’s philosophy has been that if people are performing a type of diving, they should be properly trained to do it. Sticking with that philosophy, Emergency Response Diving International (ERD) Swift Water Level 1 course has been officially released.
ERDI worked very closely with several of its experienced infield instructors, Bo Tibbetts of Public Safety Dive Training, Mark Phillips of PSDiver Monthly, Keith Cormican of Wazee Sports and Dart Craytor, to develop a level one swift water course that is both practical and realistic of what is expected when called out to perform a swift water rescue.
“The ERD Swift Water Level 1 is just a component of what will turn into a total top water program with multiple levels” stated Sean Harrison Vice President of Training and Membership Services. He further stated that “the other components of the top water curriculum will cover training for: flood plans non-moving water, swift water with rescuers in-water and night swift water operations.”
With all the recent floods around the world there is a serious need for this training and for the training to be standardized. ERDI is here to provide that standardized training.
