All ERDI programs are available to Public Safety professionals regardless of your position within a department. Programs are classified in three different levels, Awareness, Operations, and Technician. The Awareness level program can be completed simply by doing the online academics for the ERDI course of interest. Upon completion of any of the online ERDI Academy courses, you receive an awareness level certificate. For additional awareness and understanding of the course you can audit the practical session.
The Operations level course is completed with the participant doing the online academics and also participating in the non diving segments of the Operations level course taught by an ERDI Instructor. Depending on the program you are completing, this portion of the training shows how to properly perform and or supervise non diving Emergency Response duties.
The Technician level is the final step to complete the required number of practical training sessions under the supervision of your ERDI Instructor. Here you will apply what you have learned during your awareness and skill-development sessions, while learning practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience. Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive an Technician certification.
