The biggest learning point for me so far has been how much hard work goes on behind the scenes of a dive shop. Taking tanks and equipment to the boat, washing equipment, filling tanks etc. But it is rewarding to see how this helps the guests to have a lovely stay and enjoy their dives.
I have been able to assist in a couple of courses, including EFR and a rescue courses in which it was great fun to practise my acting skills and fine-tune my own rescue skills. There is also lots of theory work to do and this week I practiced my first dive briefing, hopefully I will become more confident as time goes on! I also jumped in the pool yesterday with instructor Karoline to help her with her open water students. It was really interesting to see all the skills that I will need to master and it was great to have the chance to practice some of these skills with Karoline, its been so long since I did them!
