CONCEPTUAL THINKING

Before setting out for your training, think of the goals you are aiming for.

It's a good idea to have a firm grasp on your target.

Think of three important operations that will matter most to your outreach.

Make sure the first one is a fundamental operation.

Give it your best and your time, don't skirt that one!

TRIALS

The best way to map your training out is to look at your program mission.

Do your goal work in the scope of your region?

Are they complimentary to the Rescue Water Craft you are using?

Be critical in this phase.

What you design in training is the operational goal when the call comes in.

Make sure you are not wasting gas, but training with purpose.

THE TEAM

Your team should be your 'devil's advocate.

Hash out any potential issues.

Write them down and identify corrective measures.

Your planning strategy has the ability to hone the results rather than heading to the water and figuring it out.

Remember, thinking like a survivor, act like a Coxswain.

We have discovered it takes about 85% background work to attain that 15% on water time.

That may help you with your timelines.

When you are do, conduct thorough examination of the results.

Where did you improve?

When you get to that point, its back to planning again for the next training session!

Good luck friends!

NOVEL RESCUE WATER CRAFT TRAINING

CONCEPTS OF DESIGN

It sure wasn’t easy to create Rescue Water Craft training for our maritime community. But it also wasn’t hard because we put in a lot of effort.

We knew the folks who brought the product to fruition. These were chain reaction effects.

We paid attention, and listened to our mentors. We studied, we studied mishaps, history and listened to instructors and associates.

We trained and traveled, build boats and tested equipment, we went all over the world, we chased storms and big waves and worked disasters.

To create Rescue Water Craft training we had to come up with a new schema that did not exist before, why?

When this new small power boat was created; the Jet Ski®, we understood the risk, we knew the accident behavior, we lived it and we raced with those risks. t continue we focused on what every motorized culture did, we created the safety mindset.

That safety culture has saved lives and protected reputations and departments from disaster.

K38 training in itself is Novel due to this product and we were created programs to serve the need and further propel the positive use, and we have achieved this in partnership with thousands of others.

We did not do this alone.

THE JET SKI CREATED THE PATH

It was the beginning of a new era of boating safety pursuits back in the 1970s. The changes in the product lines determined operator behaviors that were not always positive.

It was apparent we would focus on behavioral training and occupational enforcement of those actions. We also lined up with boating safety and the actions that would work with these boat characteristics.

It has not been easy, but we are still here focused on the mission to rev-olutionize lifesaving worldwide using these unique boats.

Working hard is not the entire solution. Being smart is part of it to a small degree of the distribution, but that is really a collective responsibility. It is about a team effort and having true content, consistency and modernization.

There are casual sequences of opportunity within our training hierarchy worldwide. Credit doesn’t always extend to those who are smart, hard-working, the creators, good imitators or bad ones.

The credit goes to the survivors of mishaps who have been positively recovered without additional duress exerted by the responders.

Basically, when instructing, the goals are to enhance the abilities of others and make sure those facts of the spectrum of training are enforced.

Otherwise there will be chaos aka mishaps.

That is why standards run strong on success, they are measured and controllable actions.

You are mandated to be current and to use and seek out the best methods and practices in regard to your boating conduct.

PERFORMANCE ABILITIES

We constantly seek competent people. They may not have the skills initially, but in the selection criteria they have future opportunity.

Operational truth is discovered during the scrutiny of the training attempts, passes and failures. Having desire is not enough, one most understand what a marine unit is and the purposes and rules that back that up.

Its not lifesaving. It’s boating, its seamanship skills, it’s about embracing the precepts of a prudent mariner.

Or it isn’t; and those who aren’t are far too obvious and painful when observed. We want to invite them to change and uplift their chaos into boating safety control.

One of the measures for boating rescue techniques is in the mindset and subsequent performance functions a Coxswains enacts.

How a Coxswain is capable of working under pressure is a great equalizer in maintaining the ‘Seconds and Feet’ performance we have when working in any high-risk zone.

Keep working on your Novel information, ideas, outreach and training.

Set new boating goals, set three at a time and keep refining them.

Check in with your mentors.

Revisit your training doctrines.

Stay in touch with the boating safety organizations and government authorities responsible for boating in your country of origin.

Keep thinking-Keep Learning!

FASTER THAN THE MASTER

SLOW DOWN

You cannot move faster than the master of boating education. No matter how badly you want it, reality will show you the reasons why.

When you place yourself in that position, you cannot afford the tuition you didn’t pay for by dedication, study and scrutiny. There are no short cuts to rising to the top. Failures can be costly, slow it down a little!

Desire should not be confused with competency. Training is a development structure of the direction one needs to go to attain the necessary skills as an occupational mariner.

Training itself for one evolution in training will not secure mastered success. Life teaches us this lesson all the time. Athletes exemplify it and schools represent it.

Don’t think you can jump ahead without a conscientious respect for boating safety. To be part of community is to be immersed within it and surrounded by other mariners.

To develop your skills, give yourself about six months of applied training. That means every day training, not one training session on the water for 2 hours and 3 hours of preparations.

When somebody tells me, they have been operating Rescue Water Craft for 5 years I take stock of that quote and ponder the agreeableness on its terms.

5 years is 1,825 days. There are 24 hours in a day, if we take 40 hours as a regular work week, we are looking at 2,080 hours a year x 5 that would put them up to about 6,240 hours of Rescue Water Craft on water work. Nobody in the world has it.

Think about restructuring that answer. Stop saying you have 5 years of experience, and start saying you are still learning and get back on the boat!

Learning skills will be restrained or resolved depending upon the relationship value of the particulars that are presented to you and how those sills are corrected. Who doesn’t want to be better at these operations? I sure do!

EARN YOUR MERITS DON'T CLAIM THEM

First you need to make a commitment. This commitment needs to cover several areas, your time, your money and your honest effort and willingness to make improvements. That’s asking a lot of you!

That means you have to be trainable.

Some people simply are not, they need to be realistic and conduct some homework first on the demands associated with Rescue Water Craft operations.

If you aren’t ready to do that part, that educational sacrifice you will never master Coxswain skills needed in the dynamics of boating safety.

You will need professional help. Directly from experts who are properly vetted and tested by a boating organization. If you want the right help you need to go to the best instructor.

Be willing to take honest feedback aka critiques from your instructor. If you cannot take the advice, you probably are not the best fit for this demanding role.

Evaluations can be uncomfortable, but a mishap you create from not listening or not being able to grasp the advice will cost you more than you can afford in reputation.

Once you get your foundational skills down, practice on them one at a time.

• Over and Over.
• Set goals
• Evaluate your benchmarks.
• Move onto the next one.

While you are engaged in your skill building you are still in the experimental phase. Learning the ropes as they say. Do you know where that idiom originally came from? Our nautical heritage of course! The tall ships rigged with ropes to set the sails.

CONSIDER THE OBVERSE

Without the seaman’s knowledge of these ropes these ships could not catch wind to their sails. Hence ‘learn the ropes’ was for the knowledge of the basics of sailing and as the ropes were learned onto the mastery of the ships rigging, raise the main and an assortment of knots as a deckhand.

An instructor will ‘show you the ropes’, because they have the experience to introduce you to the same thing! How does this work? Well, from imitation of course, but within the audience.

We have people who imitate poorly by not making that commitment for training. Without training, there is no knowledge and without knowledge there is no performance. Everything is reliant on the variation of the other. If not, it’s impractical.

In our method of training we know that learning the ropes means you will need to show him the ropes. You cannot master that which you can not define. This takes time, real hours, on-water hours, documented results.

That’s the hard part, people are spread thin on demands and it is challenging to respect the mastery of our seamanship skills. It’s not for everyone.
Don’t learn on your own, get advice, structure and feedback.

Don’t think you can do this after one class, a few days or hours, that’s a formula for failure.

Do learn by passing and failing your skills aka trial and error. Monitor your results.

Seek knowledge from a variety of resources and continue to learn, don’t set an end point on your knowledge. Learn how to use your time in a context of value by focusing on key items you can include in your evolutionary learning objectives.

Be your own Devil’s Advocate. Why are you doing it that way, what else can you do, how will additional dynamics cause your methods to fail, what can you adapt regarding change?

Talk to people you don’t like and to people you admire. Gain insights from both of their respective models. Speak up, don’t hide in the shadows, reach out and tolerate the results.

You cannot move faster than your master. You may have to swallow some humble pie and realize they may still be on the pursuit of study as a learner and that may very well be why they are a master.

When you pair up with a vetted master you now have the opportunity to challenge the evidence and to scale your ambition safely and surely.
You don’t want to end up a master of disaster.

Reconcile that time by becoming a prudent mariner.
