Ocean Rescue Boats/Certifications
We are trying to start a new Ocean Rescue team with a team of certified rescue divers. What certifications do other teams have and what requirements are needed to operate a rescue boat. We are looking at a 14' beach launched inflatable. Any comments and help is greatly appreciated.

Although my deptment provides water ops on inland waterways:
My department utilizes Lifeguard systems for our public safety dive training, they also provide other types of water ops training including small boat handling, Ocean rescue/recovery diving, and surf rescue to name a few. Their web site is www.teamlgs.com.
please feel free to contact me if you have any questions:

We use Lifeguard Systems for all of our water related training. Great group of guys and very knowledgeable. As far as the boat, sounds like you guys have the same set up as us for rescues of the beach (14’ inflatable boat). All that we require for operations of this boat is the attendance of a 4 hour in house training course on the use of the vessel and clearance from the training officer (Ocean rescue and surf rescue training are required also). As far as boat operations in the river and bays, that’s a different story….
