Hi guys, well, it's that time again!
The Belize Institute for Tropical & Wilderness Medicine and Global Medical
Rescue Services Ltd. will be offering Dive Accident Management & Marine
First Responder training & certification September 24-29, 2005
This year we will be at SunDiver, North Aambergris Caye, and the facility will
be closed so we will have the place to ourselves. This is a class for Belizeans, by
Belizeans (native and adopted, LOL) and while there will be a few US students
attending, this class is 100% Belize!
This year's class will be very heavy on dive accident management & water based
emergencies. It will also include a dual-track medical first responder program: the
basics for those without prior training and a review with more advanced topics
for those who are already certified. Plan on LOTS of hands-on practice in and
around the water!
Our local contact is Cori Doctor at CayoSunGirl@aol.com or call Belizean
Or email me for more details, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Special reduced pricing for locals is in effect as always. Class includes all needed
supplies except a personal life jacket/knife/flashlight. We will be offering two
fully paid tuition scholarships as always. Cori is in charge of taking applications
Those trained last year have an impressive track record of responses and patient
treatments. Lets build on it and keep the momentum going!
