Are We Clear from Covid-19 Virus?

We have experienced one year of MCO and we do not want the experience of locking down at home back again. Eventhough most of us got the body vaccinated, it does not mean that we are free from the virus. We have to make precaustion steps. A lot of business operators have been affected badly and some of them have decided to close down their businesses due to the long break and not be able to sustain the overhead.

I appreciate that this is a difficult time for many business owners and I am confident that
the scuba diving industry will bounce back but there is likely to be a ‘new normal’ and level of expectation in sanitisation not previously witnessed by the sector.

SSI SCUBA SKILLS UPDATE DURING MCO

Diving requires special skills learned during training and maintained through practice. “Use it or lose it” is especially true in diving. While skills will degrade somewhat with as little six months of inactivity, most dive educators and instructors consider inactivity of one to two years sufficient to warrant refresher training.

The Scuba Skills Update is a refresher course that allows to review and practice the knowledge and skills you learned in an Open Water Diver program. The benefits:

Review the basic knowledge and skills to feel safe and comfortable before going “back in the water.”
Be ready for the next vacation and able to display a mastery of skills when entering the water.

PADI RESCUE COURSE

Testimonials

Most certified PADI Rescue Divers look back on their rescue training as one of the most challenging – sometimes demanding – and therefore most rewarding programs they’ve taken. The subject is serious, but the training is fun.

Getting the Most Out of the PADI Rescue
Diver Course

Designed to offer flexibility for application in different locations and by people with differing abilities, the PADI Rescue Diver course consists of two basic learning divisions: knowledge development and water skills (rescue training exercises and open water rescue scenarios). Knowledge development covers the principles and foundational information that you’ll apply in the course. You’ll complete knowledge development with your independent study, discussions in briefings and/or classroom sessions.

During the rescue training exercises, you apply your knowledge as you develop and practice rescue skills. Each exercise begins by introducing new skills. As you demonstrate capability with the skills, your instructor will integrate them with what you’ve already learned by running practice drills that simulate various conditions and situations. This teaches you to think before you act, and to adapt what you’re learning to the variables of each situation, such as your physical attributes, the victim’s size, the environment and conditions, and so on.

After you’ve successfully completed the knowledge development and rescue training exercise portions of the course, you’ll transition to the open water rescue scenarios. The scenarios take place at one or more open water dive sites typical of your local environment.
Each scenario simulates aspects of an emergency similar to what you could face in the local environment. Your instructor will try to make the scenarios as realistic as reasonably possible, giving you the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned in realistic circumstances. After successfully completing the scenarios, you’ll have earned the PADI Rescue Diver certification.

PADI EQUIPMENT SPECIALIST SPECIALTY COURSE

What is is all about?

Introduction
As a scuba diver, you already know that scuba diving is an equipment-intensive activity. From convenience items like lights and cameras, to essential gear like exposure suits, cylinders and regulators, there’s a lot to wrap your head around.

Unfortunately, many new divers are reluctant to learn more about equipment because they feel they’re not “mechanically inclined.” You don’t need a degree in mechanical engineering to understand how scuba equipment works. Equipment Specialist eLearning will help you to understand how (and why) certain pieces of scuba equipment work.

Whether you plan to invest in your own gear, or just want to know a little more about it in general, in this supplement you’ll learn the benefits of owning your own equipment, how to choose it and considerations after you’ve invested in that equipment.

GET YOUR E-LEARNING MANUAL We accept 18 months installment with zero interest.

On the practical side of view, you may need to let us know your regulator model for us to source your service kit beforehand. The practical session will be conducted at Petaling Jaya.
