Specialty diver.

 

Deep diver

Who should take this course?

The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the Deep Diver Specialty course. 

 

What will you learn?

Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over:

  • Specialized deep diving equipment.

  • Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.

  • Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.

Assistant Instructor.

The aim of the training is to prepare the advanced diver to work as a diving instructor and to provide all the knowledge necessary to assist the instructor as an assistant. The participant assists the instructor and thus represents an important member in the dive center / staff area. In addition to additional experience, teaching sessions and presentations, the ProTec Assistant Instructor has already learned how the ProTec system works.
