First Aid Training18 Jul 2010
For the past few weeks, Stefanie (our resident nurse and diving / EFR instructor trainer) has been running first aid courses for some of the resort staff.
Participating in the course have been a number of the dhoni crews who are regularly taking our guests on diving and snorkeling trips. All the boat captains have been previously trained in what to do in case of emergencies in the water, but this was a great opportunity for the rest of the crew to learn what they could also do in case a situation arose.
The participants learnt how to administer basic first aid, apply wound dressings, provide oxygen and to treat aquatic marine life injuries.
Mueen and Yaafis were on hand to help Stefanie with any translations into Dhivehi help the crew complete the course.
