I took a mine rescue course. It was five exhausting and rewarding days that sort of defined what it is to be on a team.
Everyone had their strengths, weaknesses and doubts that we helped each other through. We learned a lot, and we laughed more. I have confidence in topics I didn’t even know about prior to the course.
My brute strength may have been below par, but rumour has it I scored 100% on the course.
They didn’t actually tell us our scores, but apparently they were telling the next batch of mine rescue candidates.
However, I think their statements lacked some truth – I only scored 92% on the written part of the exam, perhaps I made the rest up in charm?
