The course is primarily aimed at snorkeling tour operators. Also, the workshop explained about how to recognise an emergency situation, how to reach the diver, vital first aid that relates to diving and how to transfer the patient to the closest medical unit.

“Tourism development is work that requires all sections to work together, from the bottom, up. Apart from government organisations, there must be communities and businesses joining the development to make it safe and more efficient. The safety training for divers is important and is a part of good, sustainable tourism,” said Santi Pawai.
