Underwater rescue training

BISMARCK, N.D. - Water rescues aren't always an easy task. A North Dakota diving instructor, who's traveled the world for the past 40 years, is training the next generation of students and first responders to become certified divers, and to be prepared for those water rescues.

Randy Kraft, the owner of Scuba One, says each student must study in a classroom setting before jumping in the pool. The two day program gives them the practice they need to take the real test.

"And you're dealing with new people all the time, which makes it a lot more fun, so you have new excitement, new anticipation, and that's what makes it work, so to speak," said Randy Kraft, Master Scuba Instructor.

Kraft says he's witnessed first hand the impact having diving skill are for public safety teams.
