Skipper training pilot scheme launched

Skipper training pilot scheme launched

As part of an Egypt-wide scheme to increase the diving knowledge of boat operators, the CDWS has launched a pilot training course for 50 skippers in late June/early July.

The pilot course will train skippers from a mix of diving day boats and sports boats and will include internationally recognised seamanship skills, emergency first aid response and environmental awareness. Following the pilot this summer, the course will then be evaluated and introduced in 2010 as a compulsory course for CDWS members. All the courses will be heavily subsidised as part of the commitment to improve knowledge and safety standards throughout the watersports industry in Egypt.
