    Stay tuned. Whaler Instructor Dahlia is soon scheduling classes; 

    1. Emergency First Response (EFR) class will include Secondary Care which is required for Rescue divers and above. March 12, 9:00AM
    2. Advanced O2 Provider incorporating the MTV mask (manually triggered ventilator) which does the breathing part of the CPR for you. March 12, 2:00PM
    3. Rescue Class

    The EFR and O2 classes will be conducted in one day, morning and afternoon sessions.

    Rescue class involves 2 full days of knowledge development, 2 full days of pool work and one ocean day. 

    Classroom training on April 23-24, all day

    Pool session April 30-May 1, all day

    Boat dives - TBD

    Rescue class is physically challenging, anyone interested in it should start some kind of work out routine in order to meet and comply with the performance requirements.

    Cost:

    1. EFR and O2 are 49.00 each. You can register for only one or both.
    2. Rescue is 199.00. This year I am getting materials at lower rate due to last year's increased activity.
