- Watermanship and Stamina
In this phase, trainees will undergo timed tests (swimming, tread water, etc.) in a pool or confined open water as part of the training. This step also involves mastering skills to effectively rescue an unresponsive diver, which includes equipment removal of both rescuer and victim and in-water resuscitation. Watermanship and stamina also involve demonstrating certain skills such as gear assembly, fin pivot, 5 point ascent, buddy breathing and mask R & R remove and replace, just to name a few.
