Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to miss a dive because something simple has broken which you don’t know how to fix?
Whether it’s a blown o-ring, regulator problem, wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, you can learn how to manage basic scuba equipment adjustments as a PADI Equipment specialist.
This course is perfect for times when you want to carry on your diving education but can’t or don’t want to get wet – no diving needed.

During your course you will learn:
- How to care for and maintain basic scuba equipment
- How to care for and maintain your own equipment (you will be asked to bring it with you).

- Be more comfortable with your kit
- Know how to get the best performance from it
- How to care for, maintain and store it
- How to prevent and overcome common kit problems
You will also have a chance to see and interact with many types of scuba gear and accessories including torches, gear bags, SMB’s, dive computers, regulators, dive knives, weight systems, photography equipment and much more.
The course takes on average one day.
The cost of the your equipment speciality course is £135.

Diver training courses are meant to be fun but like any form of learning you’ll need to invest some time and effort reading and studying before we can get you into the water. It is therefore extremely important you complete you homework before your practical course. Our learning agreement and cancellation policy explains what is required and what to do should you need to postpone or cancel your course.
