EMERGENCY RESPONSE DIVER LEVEL II

ERD-II Training

Emergency Response Diver Level II

This is the second generic level of training for the public safety diver. The Emergency Response Diver level 2 training. In this course will challenge the PSD’s legal and technical knowledge as much as it tests the candidate’s skills and techniques to further his/her readiness for emergency response diving. 

ERD II students will successfully locate an object, rig a lift bag and lift the object to the surface while maintaining evidence continuity. They will discuss the potential hazards and benefits of various lifting techniques and considerations for evidence recovery. Students will also learn physiological changes that occur to human remains and how to handle a body/body bag.

ERD II students should prepare to spend several hours in their dry suits, full face mask, and personal protective equipment.

Upon certification, the candidate, YOU, will be able to operate both as a diver and tender in limited open water public safety diving activities.
