Equipment Specialist

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.

Please note this course is not an equipment service course – it provides you with the foundation you will need if you are interested in learning about minor equipment repairs. 

What does the course consist of?

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).
  • Interesting background information about how your scuba gear works.  The knowledge you will gain will help 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.

Things to do after you qualify: Go on dive trips
At Wraysbury Dive Centre we organise dive trips both at home in the UK and abroad.   Trips are organised for all levels of diver.  Just keep an eye on our trips page here and on our facebook page for upcoming events.
Things to do after you qualify: Buy dive kit
You may have already bought your first dive toys but if you have not, you may be considering making that first purchase.  We would always recommend that you purchase your dive equipment from a dive shop rather than shopping online (and its not just because we have a dive shop on site).  Buying in person allows you to try things on so that you get the right fit, get the right advice and kit for the type of diving that you intend to do and benefit from the experience of those that actually go diving.  You may also end up with a better deal than you imagined.
