Search and Recovery

As part of the divemaster course, the DMT’s (Divemaster Trainees) complete several different scenarios, including assisting on courses from Open water, advanced, rescue, and others, they also practice navigating around dive sites and leading dives.

Another scenario is the search and recovery, this is where the DMT’s learn about tying knots from bowline to half hitches, they also gain more experience navigating with a compass, by using search patterns, and then finally when they find the missing item they use a liftbag to bring it to the surface. This scenario helps the DMT’s alot with becoming more comfortable navigating and also working as part of a team to find and recover different objects, and helps with communicating and solving problems underwater.
