PADI FIRST AID FOR HAZARDOUS MARINE LIFE INJURIES
Although serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, most divers experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures at some point in their dive careers. Knowing how to recognize and minimize these injuries helps you reduce diver
discomfort and pain.
The First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries course is designed to provide knowledge to the general diving public regarding specific types of marine creature injuries and the general first aid treatment for those injuries. In addition, this course introduces students to the identification of
potentially hazardous marine life as well as how to avoid hazardous marine life injuries.
This program also provides an excellent opportunity for experienced divers and instructors to continue their education.
The nature and scope of this course is limited to training divers and interested non-divers such as boat captains, water enthusiasts and non-diving family members to identify potential hazardous marine life, to provide first aid for a hazardous marine animal injury and to prevent injuries caused by
hazardous marine life. This course does not provide training for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or scuba diving rescue. The training exercises of this course pre-suppose that the ill or injured diver has already been brought to shore or is aboard the boat
Cost: $150 including materials (provided on the evening of the course)
