Divemaster Course – Scuba review and Skin diver practice

Scubabunny Costa Rica scuba diving, Divemaster Internship, Internship, Scuba Diving

So the busy week continued, after the CPR, then exploring Uvita diving and today we headed to the pool for some pre-IDC skill circuit practice and Divemaster course skin diver and scuba review practice.As part of the PADI Divemaster program our budding candidates have to be able to conduct a scuba review program and run a skin diver course. We haven’t had many refresher courses lately so we ran a simulation instead with some of our other candidates and IDC students. Set a couple of skills, some problems and problematic students and away we went. Nothing too serious that a Divemaster candidate can’t fix, forgotten snorkels, 5 point descents and some BCD removal problems ; ). The skin diver program was our second half, specifically focusing on the head first skin dive, 50ft/15m swim underwater and then snorkel clearing. These are essential skills in the open water diver program as well, where a divemaster can assist so important that they know how to teach it. Great demos from our trainee Shane and he showed good control of the class. Finished in less than a week, he’ll then be out teaching the real thing…good luck and happy bubbling!!
