Scuba Skills Update

Duration: 1 day

Dive Resort Cebu

If it’s been a while since your last dive,  we recommend that you comply with the recommendations made by your training agency regarding the completion of a Scuba Skills Update before diving. Most agencies recommend a Scuba Skills Update if you have not dived for 6 months or longer.

The Scuba Skills Update is a short refresher course including a review of the safety information you learned during your initial training in a supervised skill session in confined water with your Instructor. We will help you tune up important diving skills such as buoyancy and breath control, equipment assembly and breathing from an alternative air source. You can then take a supervised open water dive to discover the beauty of the Philippines. The open water dive will be from the boat or shore.

What will I do during the Scuba Skills Update?

You go over the scuba knowledge you learned during your initial training then  practice fundamental skills in a pool or a confined water area. You review:

  • Safe Diving Practices
  • Dive Planning Fundamentals
  • Problem Management
  • Breathing air at depth
  • Recreational diving and dive tables: basic knowledge
  • Recreational diving and dive tables: dive planning

After you complete the knowledge assessment, you go through the Confined Water Skills Preview. You review information about each skill, why it’s important, points to remember when performing the skill and a short video clip. Completing this section just before practicing is a great way to refresh your knowledge of how each skill is performed.
