5 Water Rescue Course (Surface- and Swift- Levels I&II) This is the evaluation tool used to validate the trainees proficiency in the skills required to complete the Water Rescue course (Level I&II). The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 6 Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications 28 edition has specified Job Performance Requirements (JPR) required by individuals to comply with Chapter (Surface Water Rescue) and Chapter 2 (Swiftwater Rescue). In this course all JPR s in Chapters & 2 of NFPA 6 are assessed by one of three methods:. Written exam The written exam will be given to assess the trainee s cognitive knowledge of the material taught during the course. NFPA-6 JPR s-..;..2;..3;..4;..5;..8;..9;.2.4; 2..2; 2..3; 2. Skills Check-off The Skills Check-off is a list of practical skills that each rescuer must perform under evaluation during the course. An instructor s signature will constitute endorsement of acceptable performance. NFPA -6 JPR s-..2;..3;..4;..5;.2.;.2.3; 2..; 3. Exit Skills Test The Exit Skills Test is a set of skills that must be performed at the end of the course. Each skill has criteria that must be met in order to pass the skill. NFPA-6 JPR s-..6;..7;..;..;.2.2; 2..4; 2.2.;

6 Water Rescue Course (Surface- and Swift- Levels I&II) Written Test Instructions Once all learning objectives have been covered, a written test will be administered to the trainees. The test is a multiple choice exam and each question is directly linked to a learning objective within the curriculum. A minimum score of 7% must be achieved to complete the course. If the student fails the first attempt a second attempt may be given. If he/she fails the second attempt this would constitute a failure of the course. If the trainee fails the course a Course Attendance certificate may be given. This would identify the participation in the course but would not qualify the trainee to continue on to higher levels of training. Skills Check-off Instructions Students will be performing these skills throughout the week during class. Instructors will evaluate two major areas: Safety and Efficiency. If any action is considered unsafe it should be stopped immediately. Instructors will work with students, teaching them to use efficient techniques. As the student performs these skills throughout the week, instructors will assess their proficiency. Once the student performs each of the required skills to the satisfaction of the instructor (evaluating: Safety and Efficiency) the instructor will initial the Skills Check-off sheet indicating the student can competently perform the skill. The instructors will work with trainees until he/she can perform the Check-off skills to the satisfaction of the Lead Instructor. There is no maximum number of attempts. Once all skills are endorsed by an instructor, the student must sign the Skills Check-off Sheet confirming he/she feels comfortable and competent at performing the specified skills. 6

7 Exit Skills Test Instructions Once all learning objectives have been met, an exit skills test will be administered to the trainee. Each Exit Skill Sheet gives the objective for the skill, instructions for the trainee, examiner notes, and preparation instructions. Each skills test will also describe the criteria that will constitute a,, or 2. Note: Not all possible situations that would dictate a,, or 2 are listed. It would be impossible to encompass all possible variations. In general; A 2 will indicate you performed the skill correctly and efficiently. A will indicate that you performed the skill safely but not efficiently. A will indicate that you have incorrectly performed the skill or done something the evaluator considers to be unsafe. Stations will be set up the same for each test and each student. These are testing stations; no teaching will occur during testing. Each trainee will be allowed three attempts to pass each Exit Skills Test. A separate Skill sheet should be used for each attempt. All Exit Skill Sheets should be attached to the task book for documentation.. If a trainee fails on his/her first attempt, time will be made to remediate the trainee in preparation for a second attempt. 2. In the event of a second failure, a second remediation will be provided in preparation for a third attempt. 3. If the trainee fails on his/her third attempt it will constitute a failure of the course. If the trainee fails the course a Course Attendance certificate may be given. This would identify the participation in the course but would not qualify the trainee to continue on to higher levels of training. 7
