Marc one of our new divemaster trainees was welcomed to Liquid hearing the phrase “HELP! Jim is drowning!” He heard this a lot during his first week! Marc arrived as a PADI advanced diver and after a few fun dives to get back into the swing of it, jumped straight into his PADI rescue course.
Here is a snippet of Marc’s first blog..
“I arrived 12 days ago at Liquid and learned that a lot can happen in 12 days. The first day was all about introductions, getting acquainted with everyone and of course having a few beers at The Lodge in the evening. A great way to start my new adventure I might add! This is my first time in the Philippines and so far I love it! Everyone I have met within this short time has been just great, from the people at the airport and in the airplane, to the staff and guests at Liquid. The mentality here could be summarized in short as “Relax and let’s just be nice to each other and respect each other.
Anyways, time to talk diving! I arrived at Liquid as an advanced diver and after a few fun dives to get back into the swing of it; I started my PADI Rescue Diver and Emergency First Response (EFR) courses. It took 5 days to complete both courses and involved learning a lot of theory and practicing skills such as, how to give CPR and basic first aid for the EFR course. The Rescue Diver course is all about safety. It is pretty full on but a lot of fun, you learn stuff like how to get an un-responsive diver from the ocean floor onto the boat while maintaining an open airway or seeking a lost diver using search patterns.”
