Advanced Equipment Speciality Course Speciality - Not approved by PADI, BUT does includes a FREE PADI Equipment Speciality - This Advanced course goes way beyond the PADI Equipment Speciality which is included FREE with this advanced course.

This Advanced Equipment course has been designed over the years to provide a high degree on understanding of the function, repair and servicing requirements of Scuba equipment. This is not a scuba equipment-servicing course. However those wishing to go on and become equipment technicians are likely to benefit from this course.  This course goes into considerable detail regarding the operation and servicing techniques. It is designed to give more experienced divers and PADI professionals a good understanding of the workings principles of diving equipment, helping them to "save a dive" if equipment has a problem and to make informed purchasing decisions.

You get hands on whilst stripping & re-assembling equipment. We will also show you a large selection of new and used parts and spares so you can see what they look like and so we can show you both good and bad examples of equipment wear.
