As training goes on, divers practice search and recovery on the pond floor. Tethered to an on shore 'tender,' a team member responsible for keeping track and communicating with the diver through tugs on the rope, divers simulate becoming tangled in an underwater obstacle. Two divers on standby are ready to come to their aid with an extra air tank and to help untangle the divers and bring them safely back to shore.
