Rescue DiverLast night I started something I had been saying I wanted to do for the past 3 years. I took and passed the exam for the Rescue Diver Cert. After the exam, I went to the pool and practiced all the confined water skills, and did them much better than I thought I would. This morning, I finished the process at the lake, completing the open water portion of the cert and am now a Certified Rescue Diver. It was a much easier certification than I had imagined it to be, even when my panicked victim at the bottom spit out his reg and swiped my mask from my face. I’m glad he didn’t make it easy on me as I am thankful to have been tested in an extreme case to be prepared for the unfortunate worst. Anywho...gotsta get to bed so I can wake up early to complete my Search and Recovery Cert tomorrow :-)
