CONCEPTUAL SCHEMES OF LEARNING
Learning is leading. Your decision making is a process, its part of your courage, your creativity and subsequent action.
Stop relying on your conceptual schemes and thoughts, you have to put the element of the risk of nature and human action into the mix, this elevates your character as a Coxswain.
This is how you find the solutions to the problems you will encounter when underway on a small high risk craft in dynamic conditions.
A good Rescue Water Craft instructor will not solve the problem that a student coxswain candidate needs to learn.
This causes great harm to their safety.
The student candidate cannot be disarmed in the face of natural chaos, they must be ready and strong to make the best decisions in a moment of peril or at speed when quick thoughts are inherent to personal safety.
Rescue situations are not a place to waste personnel, training time and funding. The investment should be grounded in the rise, not the fall of a political program that does not care about reputation and is willing to kill its own people.
STRUCTURE OF REALITY
If there is a collapse of a on-water rescue or Rescue Water Craft training course, it is an indication of internal corruption aka 'lack of prudent mariner skills'.
If an agency is conducting remedial program review (hopefully they do this annually) and they do not bring in an outside maritime subject matter expert of their inner circle, they are going to recreate the same nightmare if they have recurring mishaps or mechanical RWC failures.
It’s impossible for these groups or teams to succeed, they are afraid to experience the ethical success of public service in the maritime community.
Reality is our best measure of competence. Use the owners manual for the make, model and year of production of your Rescue Water Craft.
1. Make sure your Coxswains are certified annually or every three years.
2. Make sure your Rescue Water Craft instructors are certified annually, yes that is every year!
3. Make sure you review your program annually with an outside subject matter expert.
4. Make sure you have a maintenance program for all your equipment needs and an annual inspection.
Ensure that you are willing to discard an ideal rather than protect and endorse a flawed program that is not based in maritime law, rules, regulations and boating safety.
