Fathom Academy's Operations course provides minimum capabilities for “first on scene” units, providing information on how these individuals should react at a technical rescue incident.

Typically, first responders trained at the operations level do not get in the water, but Fathom Academy's students will be trained in extraction and self-rescue in addition to the typical operations level skills.
