Taking a scuba diving internship is no joke and our latest batch of interns found this out during our infamous rescue course.
We take our dive students to the next level with a week of first aid theory, intense runs, pool training, physical training, breath holds, accident scenarios, surf rescue and swims, free diving and of course actual diver rescue training and scenarios whilst scuba diving in the open ocean.
Our visiting instructor Daniel Greenslade and Eve Marshall run the course together to combine Dan's extensive medical knowledge with practical experience and we teach everything from how to treat a snake or shark bite to gunshot wounds, burns, fractures, head injuries and shock.
Our interns really feel a sense of accomplishment to get through this course and from this moment on they change and become conscious of their surroundings and ready to assist anybody in distress in or out of the water. After this course we embark on their entry into leadership diving where they gain experience of carrying the buoy line, keeping tabs on divers during scuba dives and hone their briefing skills. We are confident that at the end of their internships they will be more than competent and this shows in how many scuba diving charters in Sodwana Bay and Umkomaas employ ex Triton Interns and staff.
