Three representatives of the Moroccan lifesaving federation - International Instructor and Board Member Mrs. Mounia Melhaoui, International Instructor and Treasurer of the Federation Mr. Omar Akik and International Instructor of Instructors and Technical Director of the Federation Mr. Mohamed Rharbal - came to Israel in especially in order to train local Israeli lifesavers.
The Moroccan instructors conducted the course in both English and Arabic, while participants spoke among themselves in Hebrew.
