The other day in my Basic Safety Training class for my STCW requirement we did our pool work.
Apparently one requirement is to enter the water from a 1 meter platform and from a 3 meter platform.
Guess who has been trying to overcome a paralysing fear of heights/falls for a few years and now has 13 weeks to do it.
Can anyone show me where this requirement is laid out and can anyone tell me if there is hope of having the 3 meter drop waived?
I understand why it would be there (I think), I understand the techniques and the dangers. I also understand if it comes down to staying on a sinking/burning ship and getting my arse off, I’ll be getting off.
