The Sidemount Diver course teaches students how to utilize side-mounted primary cylinders as an alternative to the traditional back-mounted method.
Two separate courses are covered within this on-line program, the SDI Sidemount Diver course and the TDI Sidemount Diver course. Whether to take this course through Scuba Diving International (SDI) or Technical Diving International (TDI) will depend on your past training and experience, along with your future goals. If, for example, you have no prior technical diver training and experience, and you do not anticipate exceeding accepted sport diving limits, you will most likely take this course through SDI. On the other hand, if you see yourself doing technical dives or if you are interested in diving in overhead environments, you may decide on the TDI Sidemount Diver course.
Emphasis on this course is placed upon gear familiarity and sidemount diving skills and techniques.
PRESSURE TESTING & CALIBRATION OF ACCESSORIES
This course on pressure testing and calibration of accessories is intended to give the candidate the information required to conduct a pressure test and check the calibration of accessories, whilst utilising correct operations procedures in a competent manner.
As a result, the candidate will become familiar with the following:
Recording the item for pressure check / calibration
Frequency of calibration
Understanding the operations procedures
Knowledge of reliable comparatives
Recording pressure check and calibration results
Pressure check/calibration certification
A hands on approach will be adopted during the courses and the candidate will have the opportunity to pressure check a selection of accessories.The purpose of pressure testing diving accessories is not intended as just being a “money making” service, on the contrary.
Whilst charging the client a service charge, pressure testing and calibration will identify any problems with such items as;
Any other diving accessory that relies on “O’” ring seals
The accuracy of depth gauges and computers is a major diver safety issue and should be addressed on a regular basis, as are the requirements to retest transportable pressure vessels (Cylinders) and diving regulator systems.
This course was designed and created by DESTCo.
The Dive Centre Technician course is a combination of several industry standard courses including:
- TDI Nitrox Gas Blender
- TDI Advanced Gas Blender
- TDI Oxygen (O2) Equipment Service Technician
- TDI Visual Inspection Procedures
- SDI Air Fill Station Operator
- Pressure Testing and Calibration Technician (DESTCo)
These courses are accepted in most countries around the world as being suitable to work as a technician in a dive centre. Some countries will operate their own system for cylinder testing, like the U.K. These courses will give you a reasonable amount of skill and information in each of their relative fields.
The SDI Kayak Scuba Diver Speciality course is designed to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for an individual to use a kayak effectively for travel to and from a dive site. Kayaks provide a stable, economical, and efficient means of transportation over short distances. Scuba divers can use a kayak to carry gear during surface travel, provide a platform for dive operations and for dive flag deployment, and to return to shore after the dive. The ability to employ a kayak for scuba, extends the divers range and versatility.
The purpose of the SDI RNLI UK Sea Survival Speciality Diver Course is to cover the knowledge and skills to enable divers to be better prepared and skilled to dive in the UK environment. The course covers pre-dive planning with a focus on UK sea conditions, buddy procedures, emergency equipment, DSMB use and what to do if you are lost at sea. It is an ideal introduction to UK sea diving for anyone who has completed their training primarily at inland dive sites or outside of the UK.
If you’re in danger at sea, knowing what to do can make the difference between life and death. You could be rescued more quickly or may not even need rescuing if you have the right diving survival skills and kit.
The RNLI Diver Sea Survival course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to survive. We’ve developed the course in partnership with the British Diving Safety Group (BDSG).
What skills will I gain?
RNLI UK Sea Survival course covers:
- dive planning
- dive preparation
- navigation and safety equipment on dive boats
- diving in low-visibility conditions
- how to deal with out-of-air emergencies
- use of surface marker buoys (SMBs)
- ways of calling for help
- how to deal with an emergency on the surface.
You’ll also complete two open-water dives, to practise the skills and techniques you’ve learned.
