As a scuba diver, you already know that diving is an equipment-intensive activity. From accessories such as dive lights and underwater cameras, to essential gear like exposure suits, cylinders and regulators - there’s a lot to wrap your head around!
Unfortunately, many divers are reluctant to learn more about their equipment because they feel they’re not ‘mechanically minded.’ But here’s the good news: you don’t need a degree in engineering to understand how scuba equipment works; the Equipment Specialist Touch will help you to understand how (and why) certain pieces of scuba equipment work.
The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch is a fully interactive and comprehensive digital product for iOS and Android tablet devices. This valuable tool provides a beautifully immersive look into scuba equipment through short video clips and 3D rotating images to help you get a more realistic insight into how things work.
Whether you plan to invest in your own gear, or just want to learn a bit more about it in general, the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch will teach the benefits of owning your own equipment, how to choose it and apply it best across various scenarios, and considerations on care after you’ve invested in your equipment.
As part of this course you’ll learn about routine care and maintenance as well as scuba equipment storage recommendations. Once you’ve completed your online learning contact us to organise a short practical session. During your practical session you will spend some time with one of our technicians in our workshop going through things such as the inner workings of regulators & cylinders as well as sitting with one of our instructors and going through some general maintenance of your own dive gear.
What will I need?
This is a non-diving course so you won’t need to bring all your equipment. However, we recommend bringing along some kit such as your wetsuit/drysuit & regulators so we can run through maintenance bits on your own kit!
