We’ll look at equipment configuration, and support to advanced diving, including considerations such as rebreathers and mixed gases, and expanding our operations to include diving from different platforms.
Buoyage, rules of the road and crewing will be discussed, and we’ll make a review of diving conditions and on-site first aid provision and emergency management plans.
Open Water lessons
In the water, we’ll begin by reviewing self and buddy rescue techniques, then put them to the test in an advanced rescue scenario. This will be followed by using all your diving theory to plan an expedition, and manage diving activities at an unfamiliar and remote location.
