- Deploying CA-EBS (below the water surface, face down in a pool in shallow water) and clearing the
mouthpiece by exhaling under the water surface (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the
- Deploying CA-EBS (below the water surface, face down in a pool in shallow water, using opposite
hand to previous exercise) and clearing with purge button under the water surface (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)
- Deploying CA-EBS (above water surface), in a pool and breathing from CA-EBS underwater in a
vertical position (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)
- Deploying CA-EBS (underwater), in a pool and breathing from CA-EBS underwater in a vertical
position (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)
- Deploying CA-EBS (underwater), in a pool, breathing from CA-EBS underwater, and moving along a horizontal rail for a period of no less than 30 seconds, including a change in direction (at a maximum depth of 0.7m, measured at the chest)
Sea Survival/Emergency First Aid Learning Outcomes:
- Donning of a permanent buoyancy lifejacket prior to use in an emergency.
- The correct actions when mustering and boarding a survival craft (TEMPSC) as a
passenger during launching operations.
- Fitting of a helicopter rescue device and correct body posture during winching.
- Water entry (stepping off poolside, maximum height 1 meter) and the precautions to be taken when entering the water
- Individual and group sea survival techniques, to include: swimming, getting into Heat Escape
Lessening Position (HELP), wave-slap protection, towing, chain, huddle and circle.
- Boarding a marine liferaft from the water.
- Immediate first aid actions, including checking airways, breathing and industry recognised
first aid practice
Fire Fighting and Self Rescue Learning Outcomes:
- Correct use of hand held portable fire extinguishers and which ones to use for different classes of fires.
- Self-rescue techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is reduced.
- Self-rescue techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is completely obscured.
- Small group escape techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is completely obscured.
Physical / Health Demands:
Emergency response training contains physically demanding and potentially stressful elements. All personnel who participate in such training must be medically fit and capable of participating fully. All personnel will be required to complete a self-declaration of fitness form prior to commencement of
Start / Finish Times:

- Appropriate clothing for all practical sessions
- Open toe shoes, shorts, and sleeveless shirts are prohibited
- Safety-Toe footwear for practical sessions
Meals / Refreshments:
