What is it, Where is it, How do I learn More???
The Regional Certified program has been working hard to train new candidates for the March exam. We currently have four patrollers who are in the program, four that are studying hard to hone their skills so that they can be successful in the program and two who have expressed an interest. This is way up in comparison to the days when there was no local training available. So, what takes so long to prepare? Some of the things that the candidates are required to do are:
- Learn 8 knots so that you can tie them anytime, even in the dark.
(this is a prerequisite before you can go onto the Low angle rescue station)
- Set up a 1:3 low angle rescue in less than 20 minutes.
(We have one candidate that can do it in 12 minutes)
