Derek Highbarger

Derek is a PADI Open Water Diver, a first aid instructor and can certify you in American Heart Association and/or Emergency First Response.  He has taught many classes on CPR, use of an AED, Oxygen administration, and secondary first aid.  He also teaches some of our safety classes in technical rescue techniques that don't involve SCUBA.  He is a Public Safety Officer with the Augusta Department of Safety where he is both a law enforcement officer and fire fighter.

Derek's main duty in life is that of being a father and husband.  That's why he fits in so well with the Amber Waves Diving and WichitaCPRTraining Team so well.  He's got his priorities RIGHT!
