"good divers never stop learning"

 

The scope of this course is designed to provide individuals with no prior scuba training with the knowledge and skills to safely use Surface Supplied Air (SSA) in a confined pool environment to no more than 18 feet of depth in facilitation of the diagnosis, maintenance and repair of swimming pools.  Upon successful completion graduates are considered competent to use Surface Supplied Air systems (SSA) and engage in SSA activities without supervision, provided the activities and conditions dived approximate those of training.  This course does not qualify graduates as scuba divers.

Motivations for Surface Supplied Air

  • The scope of this course is designed to provide individuals with no prior scuba training with the knowledge and skills to safely use Surface Supplied Air (SSA) in a confined pool environment to no more than 18 feet of depth in facilitation of the diagnosis, maintenance and repair of swimming pools. 
  • Upon successful completion graduates are considered competent to use Surface Supplied Air systems (SSA) and engage in SSA activities without supervision, provided the activities and conditions dived approximate those of training.  This course does not qualify graduates as scuba divers.

Number of Dives and Course Duration

  • 1-3 hour academic session
  • 1-3 hour pool session to a depth not to exceed 18 feet

Qualification for Recognition

  • Pass exam with a score no less than 75%
  • Show proficiency in skills for safe and competent SSA use.

The following topics will be covered during this course:

  • Diving can be one of the most exciting and rewarding activities you will ever experience. However, like most exciting activities, there are rules and procedures you must follow. Proper training is crucial to minimize risk and maximize enjoyment. Breathing in an underwater environment can be dangerous, or even deadly, if you don’t know the rules or if you chose to ignore them. The scuba industry verifies diver certifications as the diver comes into the dive store for air fills or contracts for dive charters. There is no such interaction with hookah diving systems. Once the system is purchased by a consumer, he might not ever have an inquiry about his training or diving experience.
  • The course provides academic knowledge. To complete your training you’ll need to practice that knowledge in a controlled environment. Participation-in this water skills course with a professional scuba instructor will allow for review of your academic knowledge and practice your water skills.
  • Your instructor will review with you the topics covered course and evaluate your comprehension of the course content. Next, they will arrange a series of dives in a controlled environment (a swimming pool) to practice breathing through a regulator and other water skills. He or she will share techniques to improve your efficiency and comfort in the water. By working closely with your instructor, you will become a better (and safer) diver.
