This first level Emergency Response Diving Course is designed to give the certified open water diver, or open water certified public safety diver, the fundamental skills needed to safely function as part of an OSHA and NFPA compliant public safety dive team in both the diver and tender roles.
Emergency response diving is a combination of all of the disciplines found in the diving industry and is unlike any other individual sector found in the community. From the commercial and military houses, emergency response divers are tasked with understanding commercial rigging and lifting techniques as well as surface supplied diving operations. From the scientific community, emergency response divers are tasked with mapping and evidentiary recovery, similar to underwater archeology. Finally, basic water skills and training adapted from sport diving is the foundation on which the emergency response diver builds. Emergency response diving is singular in one aspect: it is a community based operation whose teams train for, prepare and plan for local diving in their specific geographic areas, and assist other teams in their general locale. Emergency response divers are tasked with an excess of responsibilities and must have a strong knowledge of all of these disciplines.
