Sea Breaze is very proud to have received the Gold Award for “Horizontal Skills & Employability” at the Education Leaders Awards for “VUCASIM Dive”. This program prepares individuals and groups to perform effectively in high-stress environments, such as businesses and organizations. It increases the familiarity with the environment and the conditions under which the skills must be performed effectively and develops the ability and confidence to perform these skills, despite the distractions and workloads that exist or may arise.

The corresponding Astronaut in the Ocean program, designed for children aged 9-12, 13-16, and 14-17, helps to develop responsible, ethical, global citizens, for the digital age. Students who will work together for an improved future in the dimensions, of air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace. Read more ➔

Scuba Diving for Executives, Managers & Project Teams

Leading Complex Projects

VUCA Simulation Diving. Imaginative deep dives in leadership, vitality, and vigor for risk-taking, risk management, crisis management, and critical decision making, gathering experiences dynamically

The Challenge

Pressure is a recognized as the main contributor in many incidents and errors. People behave differently under pressure and at such times, sensitivity to other human elements is heightened. Especially those to affect perception and cognitive functions.

This has been observed in highly stressful industries such as Aviation, Military, Technical, Cave and Rebreather diving, Maritime, Healthcare, Legal, as well as among business executives and organizations.

This explains why effective “training” is recommended to be done, at least in part, when people and teams are under pressure.

The Solution

This is not a traditional scuba diving program. Although you will learn about diving equipment and theory, the training focuses on highlighting the root causes of behavior and how decisions are made.
(no previous diving experience required)

This is fundamental, as it helps to achieve the transformation and unification of the teams.

Task Analysis and the corresponding systems of behavioral safety indicators have already been developed and validated in the aforementioned disciplines.

This program prepares individuals and teams to perform effectively in high-stress environments, such as in businesses and organizations. It increases the familiarity with the environment (s) and the conditions in which the skills must be performed effectively, and develops the ability and confidence to perform these skills despite the distractions and workloads that exist or may arise.

High
Functionality & Reliability
Team Training

This two-day training program combines a mix of theory from the forefront of scientific research, simple practical exercises, and works in a fun and safe hyperbaric underwater environment.

At the same time, case studies and collaborative exercises are utilized, in order to homogenize learning.

The maximum number in the class is 12 people and the minimum is 6.

The trainer of this program has many years of experience in this field, having carried out missions and corresponding training in areas such as SAR, CSAR, public safety, high-risk diving teams, and the fields of aviation and business.

Human Element &
Critical Decision Making Simulations

Although the danger potential may seem high, diving is actually a relatively safe sport when conducted sensibly. A roundup of data from the U.S., the U.K., Canada, and Japan shows that the statistical chance of fatality while diving is 2-3 per 100,000 dives.

The scuba diving missions have been designed with the support of psychologists, in order to enhance teamwork and effective performance.

Training is done by creating a “stressful”, time-bound, and demanding environment in which the only way to complete the missions on time, is to work consistently as a team, with clear roles, clear communication, effective leadership and strong decision making.

However, the volume of substantive and in-depth learning does not occur during the execution of the underwater missions. It unfolds with detailed and reflective discussions that are motivated and facilitated by our specialized staff, based on your desired goals.

Underwater Simulations

Understanding of the stress environment: A lower level of stress will generally be experienced when a greater level of advanced information on a stressful situation is made available. Participants are enabled to form more accurate expectations about the situation, increasing predictability and lowering surprise. The level of distraction is thereby reduced, and some planning is possible, which increases the avoidance of performance errors.
Skill development under benign conditions: There is a wide range of stress effects that can degrade task performance. Stress training may provide practice in behavioral and cognitive skills which allow better performance under stress, such as multi-tasking skills and prioritizing critical activities.
Building confidence in the ability to perform under stress: The training is effective when a sense of mastery is achieved. Negative experiences and situations will not have the desired effect.

Those Simulations conducted with Scuba Diving are designed to identify the existing level of experience and increase it through the “real human factor”. Enhances:

Everything is related to effective personal and team behavior – in real-time.

Scuba Diving Scenarios

Aquanauts, like astronauts in zero gravity conditions..

Scenarios provide a fun but challenging simulation activity that helps identify different behavioral patterns.

Competing teams of four divers operate with their own diving equipment, participating in a spectacular exploration of an unknown quadrant in the deep ocean – “Mid-Ocean Ridge”.

Working in pairs, the dive team members are using equipment and tools, which are designed to handle:

  • Buoyancy
  • Tasks
  • Time
  • Experiments and
  • The management of breathing gas and reserves.

Linking The Gap

This enjoyable, fun and imaginative but serious training is the missing link between purely vocational training (theory) and the challenges of everyday business (practice).

Scenarios require effective communication and collaboration in a multi-tasking environment where

  • Workload
  • Time management
  • Decision making and
  • Setting priorities

keep the participants busy.

Addressing these challenges, individuals exhibit authentic patterns of behavior, while becoming familiar with the dynamics of body motion under weightless conditions and VUCA conditions.

And most important; “Playing” their own genuine role under pressure.
