  • CAVERN DIVER

    Are you a serious adventure seeker wishing to explore overhead environments? Take the first step to overhead diving certification and sign up for the Cavern Diver course! This course is designed to develop the minimum skills and knowledge for cavern and overhead environment diving within the limits of light penetration, and outline specific hazards associated with cave diving. The cavern diver course in not intended to provide instruction for cave diving environments but does teach the "root" skills that are absolutely necessary should you decide to continue your training and proceed into Cave Diver training. The objective of this course is to train divers in the proper planning, procedures, techniques and hazards of cavern diving.

    INTRO TO CAVE DIVER

    Are you ready to pick up where you left off in the Cavern Diver Course? Are you looking to expand upon the skills developed in your previous overhead environment training? Sign up for the Intro to Cave Diver Course!

    This course is an introduction to the basic principles of cave diving utilizing a single primary guide line. Introductory cave diving is the second level in the development of proper techniques for cave diving, directly building upon the cavern diver course. This introduction to cave diving is not intended to train divers for all facets of cave diving. The objective of this course is the perfection of skills taught in the cavern diving program, in addition to the adoption of additional techniques and procedures required for elementary cave dives.

    FULL CAVE DIVER

    Are you a serious adventure seeker wishing to explore overhead environments? Sign up for our Full Cave Diver Course! This course is the third stage of overhead environment training in the series of Full Cave Diver Development Program. Advanced cave dive planning, practical execution of different types of cave systems and scenarios divers encounter are presented. This cave diving course is not intended to prepare divers for evaluating all facets of cave diving. The objective of this course is to expand and critique previous skills accomplished in the Cavern and Introductory Cave Diving programs. Emphasis is placed upon dive planning and skill perfection through actual cave penetration.

    STAGE CAVE DIVER

    The Stage Cave Diver Course is designed to teach trained cave divers how to extend bottom times and/or penetration distance through the use of stage cylinders. Divers will learn to plan dives that may incorporate longer bottom times, complex dive planning, and multiple methods of gas management. With respect to depth, gas mixes, and required decompression, course dives will not exceed the student’s current level of certification and experience level.

    CAVE DPV DIVER

    This course is designed to teach trained cave divers how to utilize Diver Propulsion Vehicles (DPVs) in the cave environment. Divers will learn about safe DPV use, DPV components, and care and maintenance. Students will learn to plan dives that may incorporate extended penetration, longer bottom times, complex dive planning, and proper methods of gas management.
