What Will I Learn?

Good buoyancy and trim are essential for safe, environmentally friendly, fun diving!

You will learn:

- about issues that affect buoyancy and trim

- the importance of good buoyancy

- weighting, over and under weighting

- how trim affects your diving

- head and body positioning

- equipment considerations

- fresh / salt water differences


You'll practice your new skills to descend, hover, fin horizontally and ascend with feedback and practical advice from your instructor/s.

What Will I Be Able To Do?

You will be able to put the theory into practice to achieve and maintain a horizontal diving position that is relaxed, environmentally friendly and consumes less of your valuable gas.
In time you will become more relaxed, more comfortable and the process will become second nature wherever you choose to dive.
On the second dive your skills will be recorded and you'll be awarded a buoyancy standard of bronze, silver, gold, or black.

What Are The Next Steps?

You could put your new found skills to good use and just do some fun dives, perhaps in different situations, to continue improving and controlling your buoyancy.
On the other hand, you could be eligible to enroll on some of the more specialist SDCs, such as the Accelerated Decompression Procedures (ADP) course.
