Customer Comments

  • Mr. Wilson was an excellent instructor and is well qualified as he applies his methods of instruction to practical applications. I would highly recommend this training, I learned many skills I can apply in real-life incidents. Steve is an excellent trainer, he knows his stuff and it shows. I would recommend the clas. This drastically increased my job/diving related skills. Started with zero training and left confident and proficient in skills.
    - Student Evaluations from the Dive Rescue 1 class in Trumbull, CT
  • I felt that the instructor took his time in order for everyone in the class to understand what was being taught. The class offered new ideas for our personal dive teams to utilize. it was just a great class and the instructor was awesome. I recommend this class to people involved in PSD. I primarily enjoyed having the chance to work with different roles of public safety including police and fire. It helps bridge the gap between the roles of each side. I learned so much during the 3 days. I felt as if i am more prepared to assist my county dive team at a more competent level.

  • Absolutely excellent training Don't know if there is any better place to get this level of training in water. We will be able share all of this knowledge with the rest of the department. More confident with any rescues our team may be called on. Absolutely would recommend this training hands down. This has given me an incredible skill set that I will bring to my department. I loved every second of it. it was challenging, exciting and so much fun. A huge thanks to Jerry (instructor) Jerry was outstanding, one hell of a guy and instructor. Top notch class. Thanks to him and the Golden Fire Department I will highly recommend this program and will encourage my department to send more people to this class and it has increased my knowledge and job skills 10-fold.

    - Customer Comments from our Ice Diving Operations class in Marquette, MI
  • I would recommend this (Ice Diving Operations) course. This course did increase my job skills and I want to take these skills back to my department and make our ice diving ops safer. I would highly recommend this (Dry Suit Repair) program to anyone with a Dive Team. As always, I learned something new from Jerry and this is the 3rd time I have taken the Interpsiro Technician course. Jerry is a great asset to Dive Rescue International.

    - Host Evaluation from a Dive Rescue I class
  • The main reason I am contacting you - I wanted to let Dive Rescue know what a GREAT instructor you have with Kevin McAfee.  First of all his SCUBA skills are remarkable, his performance under the water had the entire class amazed.  His performance while in class was just as amazing.  We had a large class and at no time did I feel he lost control or the attention of each and every student.  As students we all talk when away from the instructor and everyone had the same opinion.

  • Just wanted to let the folks out that way know that Kevin's PSSI class was the hardest think I've done in a long time. With that said, he is a cut above the rest. There are not enough great things to say about him. He is a tremendous asset to your staff. PSSI class in Cuyahoga Falls, OH  - 2012
