Learn to manage basic scuba diving equipment repairs and adjustments. Understand routine care and maintenance procedures and how dive gear works.
Don’t miss a dive due to minor issues with your scuba diving equipment. Whether it’s a missing o-ring, wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, our Equipment Specialist course teaches you to manage basic repairs and adjustments. You’ll also learn more about how your gear works, making you more comfortable with it and better prepared to take care of your investment. The class is conducted virtually over the internet with no ocean dives required.
If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a Junior Scuba Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Equipment Specialist course.
You’ll learn about routine care and maintenance procedures as well as scuba equipment storage recommendations. Your Ocean Gear instructor will show you how to overcome some common equipment problems and offer equipment configuration suggestions. You may even get to jump into the water to try new or unfamiliar equipment.
Your Scuba Instructor may ask you to have your basic scuba equipment available, but will also have examples of other dive gear for you to work with during training.
