Dive leader training DT9 – Rescue management part 1

Lesson Objectives

Previous training has addressed personal rescue techniques, which have been progressively expanded from Ocean Diver. If an incident is to be resolved effectively, the activities of all involved must be co-ordinated. Managing this effort is part of the wider role of the Dive Leader. This lesson introduces rescue management and is supplemented by further practical and classroom lessons (DT10, DT11 and DO5).

Achievement Targets

At the end of this lesson students should:

  • That rescue management starts long before an incident occurs
  • The long term factors that contribute to incident prevention
  • The factors occurring on site that enable potential incidents to be anticipated
  • The activities which contribute to the overall resolution of an incident
  • The need for activities to be co-ordinated – the role of the Rescue Manager

I have always loved the sea and diving gives me that little bit of extra special interaction. I love diving anywhere and always find sites interesting and an exhilarating activity, constantly enhancing and improving my skills and knowledge. My favourite diving has to be around the British Isles and in particular St Abbs. It has everything, the sea life, the socialising, the history and the thrill. TSAC has opened up many areas and opportunities for me and hopefully will continue to do so in the future. Here’s to the next adventure.
