End of February already, where does the time go?
Even though the water is still a tad chilly it is not stopping our intrepid divers getting their PADI fix. Three brave divers deserve recognition for achieving PADI Open Water Diver & Dry Suit specialty diver. Take a bow Megan Owenson, LeighAnne Williams and Freddie Metcalfe, welcome to the scuba family. Good luck to the divers going off on referral to complete in warmer conditions too.
Club nights were the usual hustle and bustle so thanks to everyone for supporting Diveworld at these sessions. Next one is 26th and then 12th March. The dive team were their usual brilliant selves making it all work efficiently and safely.
At the end of the month we are concentrating on extending course availability in Diveworld. We have already taken onboard the PADI Adaptive Techniques course for professionals (PADI Divemaster & above), did you know that a diver level sub course exists? The PADI Adaptive Techniques Support Diver Course is aimed at anyone who dives or wants to have the capabilities to dive as a buddy with a diver with physical or mental challenges. If you want some idea of why this would appeal then check out this video from Disabled Divers International to see what is possible. We also have full disability courses running in the centre to enable anyone with challenges to dive if they can`t achieve full PADI certification for any reason.
Ever wondered what it is like being able to breath through both mouth and nose when diving? The Full Face Mask course will satisfy that curiosity for you. Both the course and FFM try-dives will be available in March.
Exciting times, look out for our two new IDC Staff Instructors strutting their stuff we have an IDCS course running too. Full details next blog.
