Ever had a problem with a regulator on the waterfront? A crack in a diving suit or a broken diving mask? Experience shows that this kind of misery always occurs at the best diving, or rather on that holiday that you have been looking forward to for a year.
The Equipment Specialist course is the solution. In this wonderfully interesting (and useful) course you will learn the correct maintenance of various equipment, the daily care and learn how to carry out minor repairs. We handle the technique behind all complex (er) work tools for a better understanding of the functioning of, for example, the regulator. (you do NOT become a maintenance technician, but get a better understanding)
The course includes a number of useful workshops in which you get hands-on experience with the various repair activities. We perform a number of troubleshooting sessions, in which you learn to safely fix common faults, such as a light-blowing regulator caused by an expired adjustment. During this training you learn more about your own diving equipment and we introduce you to the latest (or lesser known) equipment and accessories that make diving more fun and easier.
In short: As a PADI Equipment Specialist you are prepared for basic maintenance of your diving equipment, care and adjustments that you will have to deal with on a daily basis. You also get interesting background information about how your equipment works and how it is being repaired. You also get information that helps you get the most out of what you have invested in your equipment.
The main part of this course is self study through the clear PADI course book! in this training NO diving is made, it is pure theory and a practice session at the diving school!
