Following from the successful completion of the Firefighter Foundation and Development Programme in the UK, all firefighters are required to complete a mandatory two week’s intensive course in Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA).
This course is designed to teach the individuals to dive competently using SCUBA, as well as prepare you with the fundamental elements and techniques expected by the GFRS to enable the member to become a safe and proficient diver as you start your new career with the organisation.
Once qualified, divers would be trained to a level whereas they would be competent to carry out any Search & Rescues within Gibraltar’s coastal waters.
