The variety and complexity
of diving equipment, diving skills, and diving locations available to
recreational divers have increased dramatically. It is difficult for
today’s divers to maintain their skills and be comfortable with
their equipment when they are not used on a regular basis.
For this reason it is now highly recommended be the scuba industry and
in some situations required, that divers complete a refresher course
on an annual basis.
The Scuba Skills update program is designed to update your scuba diving
skills as learned in your open water diver course, but is not designed
as a training course for uncertified divers. It is up to the dive leader
where you are in need of more than an update.
The Scuba Skills update study
guide and video are broken into the following sections which review
the scuba skills from your open water diver course.
- Responsible Diver Code
- Preparing your Equipment
- Planning Dives (including
the Dive Tables)
- Diving Skills
- Emergency Skills
- Using Your Dive Log
- Continuing Education
