Regiment divers undertake ‘Adventure Training’

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A team from the Bermuda Regiment have taken their training to new heights — or more accurately, depths.

Four members of the Quartermaster’s staff visited the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) yesterday for adventure training, team building exercises and to work towards various PADI certifications.

A Regiment spokesman said the course was led by Regiment Quartermaster Sgt Jimmy Self, with the soldiers putting forward their own money for the training. “This type of activity is common in other militaries, being termed ‘Adventure Training’ and is recognised as a way of team building and challenging individuals whilst learning new skills,” the spokesman said.

“The Regiment encourages its members to learn new skills and, as a result of allowing the soldiers to develop dive experience, we are building a base of experience that can be used to assist visiting military units conduct their own Adventure Training or, potentially, be used as part of future maritime operations.”

Bermuda Regiment Col Sgt Shaun Williams, WO2 Jason Harrell, and Sgt Jason Smith give the OK alongside instructor Lcpl Forrest Williams Jr as they prepared to decend into the waters off of the east end with BIOS for adventure training, team building exercises and PADI SCUBA certifications.
