Downbelow Operations Manager and Master Scuba Diver Trainer Strike recently completed the Deep Dive workshop with our PADI Divemaster students.
While keeping a keen eye to ensure quality and performance requirements are met, the divemaster interns learned, practiced then illustrated their command of knowledge and skill to pull off a successful skills demonstration.
Deep diving brings a special set of considerations to the table compared to normal dives, which is why this specific skill is required, especially for Divemasters who may well find themselves assisting an instructor teaching this course or elective dive.
Skills highlighted during the workshop include emergency breathing equipment, specialised deep diving techniques, compass use at depth and safe ascent techniques.
Getting to grips with this and various other techniques early on, is of great benefit to the candidates of our Borneo Internships.
Keep it up future Divemasters!
