Core components: this section is a hands-on practical, where you will deal with non-lethal injuries. You will learn about the general diving-related and non-diving related injuries and how to respond appropriately. It includes a practical session to deal with immediately life threatening emergencies and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Included optional modules: O2 Provider
As you learned in your Open Water course, most of the pressure related injuries (DCI) are dealt with by providing oxygen as an immediate response. In this section, you will examine different types of oxygen tank valves and mask types. Our instructor will also create a scenario so you can understand the right way to provide pure oxygen depending on the circumstances.
Included optional modules: AED
Ever wonder what to do with the emergency box in the shopping mall with the word AED written on it actually contains? An AED is a device to reestablish effective heart rhythm of a victim during incidents like a cardiac arrest or drowned victim. Now after your AED training, you will not only know, but to be able to actually use it to save someone in need.
You will be sent an e-mail allowing access to the SSI online academics you can use a computer or any digital device to login, update your profile and start the learning process. The multimedia academics with videos and multiple choice questions keep learning fun and ensure you are perfectly prepared for your practical session.
Your classroom session is scheduled to suit you. In React Right, all the skills we teach are beneficial in your daily life, as much as during your diving activity. Upon completing this course, you are no longer be a head in the crowd in an emergency. You will now remain calm, and being able to offer help. However, do remember that this course is not a replacement for a full length Emergency Medical Instruction course for medical professionals. Hence, you should not be providing help that is beyond your training and knowledge.
All sessions are followed with thorough debriefing and discussion about your performance helping you learn. On successful completion you will be issued with a certificate of completion and a digital recognition rating (via MySSI App). Certification lasts for two years. After this period, the certification can be renewed by an update session.
