Self Reliant Diver Course

The purpose of the Self Reliant Diver course is to recognize and accept the role of the buddy system, and its contributions to diver safety while identifying and developing self reliance and independence while diving.

The course covers aspects where diving alone may be applicable and the need for proper dive planning, life support system readiness, additional training, equipment and responsibility.

This course is an introduction to self-reliant diving that helps student divers develop the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary to rely on themselves. You will develop the skills of planning and diving without a partner, the philosophy of and motivation for diving without a partner, potential risks and how to manage those risks.
