This is our Director of Operations and Lead Instructor in this skill. It was a timed skill by the instructor on the car. This was the best time in the class



Teaching water rescue isn't a hobby for us. Unlike some in this area and Shreveport, we welcome peer review and third party evaluation of our skills. This is the third time in two years in a row we have invited this scrutiny by 3rd party professionals. YOU DONT KNOW WHAT, YOU DONT KNOW! This goes for instructors too!
