WRECK ’N’ ROLL

Asian Diver (English) - - Courses -

WRECK DIV­ING IS an in­cred­i­bly en­rich­ing and hum­bling ex­pe­ri­ence for any diver, but be­fore you can be­gin your wreck ad­ven­ture, hav­ing the proper skills and knowl­edge is es­sen­tial for a safe and re­spon­si­ble wreck dive. These cour­ses will equip you in ar­eas such as div­ing tech­nique, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, plan­ning, use of spe­cial equip­ment, and nav­i­ga­tion.

Some schools of­fer an all-in-one course that trains the diver in both non­pen­e­tra­tion and lim­ited-pen­e­tra­tion wreck div­ing, while other schools have separate cour­ses for each. De­cid­ing on which school to en­roll at and which course to take should de­pend on what you are com­fort­able with and what you wish to achieve as a wreck diver. SSI WRECK DIV­ING
