Accidents happen. We can't always control the situation and sometimes when an accident happens emergency care is required until EMS arrives. Be prepared for these unexpected events with SSI's REACT RIGHT training program.
Learn some skills that can make the difference for yourself or a dive buddy! Are you a boater, crew, parent, skier, hiker, mountain biker, etc., who would like to be better prepared to respond in an emergency?
If so, the SSI REACT RIGHT Course offered through Northeast Scuba is for you. This course teaches you the skills that can mean the difference between life and death for a buddy, a friend or family member. The program is open to both divers and non-divers and it is one course that can give you an edge even when you're not diving.
Both CPR and first aid training (Primary and Secondary Care) are combined in this one information and skill oriente dprogram. You will learn (at a layman's level), some of the same emergency techniques used by paramedics and doctors. In addition to the basic CPR and Secondary skills taught you will also be taught O2 administration and how to use an AED. This is a complete emergency response course for the diver and non-diver.. Successful participants will receive REACT RIGHT certification from SSI. Current REACT RIGHT certification, or equivalent, is a prerequisite for those divers wanting to enter both the Stress and Rescue Diver and Dive Guide, Divemaster or Dive Control Specialst programs. Course includes approximately 8 hours of instruction (may be held on week nights or weekends).
Instructional Material: REACT RIGHTY student packet and rubber gloves are provided.
