DIRrebreather DPV/Scooter Workshop
The DIRrebreather DPV (Scooter) workshop is designed to provide the participant with rebreather-specific knowledge and skills when using a Diving propulsion Vehicle. It helps the participants to improve their personal DPV skills as well as their ability to be part of a rebreather diver team using DPVs, within the limits of their current certification.
To participate in the workshop, it is required to:
Be at least 18 year old.
Have a Certification as rebreather diver (SCR or CCR) by a recognized Training Agency
Be physically and mentally fit
Have a DAN Insurance (or equivalent diving insurance)
Have participated in a DIRrebreather Fundamentals Workshop within the past 2 years
There is no minimal experience required between the basic Rebreather Diver certification, the DIRrebreather Fundamentals workshop and this workshop. However, participants should be comfortable enough with their rebreather and the skills taught during the Fundamentals workshop to be able to safely focus on the DPV operation.
DURATION AND LIMITS
The workshop should last for a minimum of 2 days with at least 2 hours of Academics and 2 in-water sessions to a maximum depth of 18m/ 60 feet (no decompression), no overhead environment. A third in-water session is optional but strongly recommended.
Maximum in-water Instructor-to-student ratio is 1:3. All participants must have a DPV at all time during the in-water sessions.
