The council has announced that "the places of the course are limited" and has encouraged all who want to do it to do the enrollment "as soon as possible" due to the good reception that the course had last year.
Pellicer has detailed the content of the course: "the general knowledge of aquatic rescue, the technical assimilation of the material control of the rescue of the victim in the aquatic environment, the extraction of the victim in the middle and the semi-rigid boat as a rescue tool".
