This Specialty course prepares you for the basic equipment maintenance, care and adjustments you’ll encounter every day.
You will learn how to manage basic scuba diving equipment repairs and adjustments. Understand routine care and maintenance procedures and how dive gear works.
During the COVID-19 situation, you can start your Equipment Specialist Course online via PADI e-learning, and once restrictions are eased, and we are all feeling more comfortable with face-to-face meetings again, we will follow up with Dave’s hands-on equipment workshop. Not only is Dave a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, he has been a qualified Scuba Service Technician for over 23 years, and is the most experienced service tech offering scuba servicing in South Australia.
Although the course is not an equipment servicing program, it does give you:
- Theory, principles and operation of dive equipment
- Routine recommended care and maintenance procedures
- Common problems with equipment and recommended professional maintenance procedures
- Simple suggestions for comfortable equipment configurations and an introduction to new equipment
Pre-requisites: PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent.
Includes PADI e-learning with instructor video call, and follow-up face-to-face equipment session.
Whether it’s a regulator problem, a wet suit tear or a broken mask strap, the Equipment Specialist course can help.
