As much as we don’t want things to go wrong, sometimes they do and you need to know what to do in an emergency.

In this module we will learn what is and what isn’t an emergency and you can help to deal with an emergency in the water

By the end of this module students should be able to:

  • Signs that someone is in difficulty

  • When you should seek help
