Have you ever thought about how your equipment works? This is a great specialty course to help answer those questions. This is a course that is practical application that gets into hands-on interaction.
You wouldn't want to miss a dive due to minor issues with your scuba equipment. The PADI Equipment Specialist course lets you take a look inside the scuba equipment you use. You'll learn more about how your gear is made, how it works, and how it breaks, making you more comfortable with it and better prepared to take care of your investment.
This course also teaches you about routine care and maintenance procedures as well as scuba equipment storage recommendations. Your instructor will show you what causes common equipment problems and what you can do to overcome them. We will also offer an in depth look at why some equipment performs better and the instructors picks for preferred equipment. You will also get a peek behind the curtain to see what an instructor and equipment technician has in his or her Save-A-Dive kit!
This class is perfect for anyone that wants to know how it works and feel better about their gear. If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Scuba Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Equipment Specialist course.
