WRECK DIVER SPECIALTY
As of January 1, 2017, DIVING FOR FUN will NO LONGER be offering training services. However, we wanted to continue to provide a list of the classes we offered along with course outlines as a reference for all our past customers.

Wreck Diving - Wreck PenetrationCourse Overview: The lure of exploring sunken vessels, airplanes and automobiles is something most divers cannot resist. The Wreck Diver Specialty course introduces you to wreck diving and helps you develop the skills and knowledge necessary for safe and fun wreck diving.

Prerequisites: To qualify for the Wreck Diver course, an individual must be certified as an Adventure Diver (or have a rating equivalent to that of an Advanced Open Water Dive and be at least 15 years of age).

Wreck Diving - PlaneCourse Activities: You will learn about the planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of wreck diving. You will also learn about the preparation and use of lights, air supplies, special equipment, penetration lines and reels and limited-visibility diving techniques and emergency procedures.
  • Classroom: There is one classroom session. The classroom session will cover the entire Wreck Diver Specialty Manual, review your knowledge review answers and prepare you for each of the four open water dives.
  • Independent Study: Before you come to class you need to read the entire Wreck Diver Specialty Manual and complete Knowledge Reviews Part I and Part II. You will need to turn in the knowledge reviews prior to certification. Recommended: watch the Wreck Diver Specialty DVD.
  • Open Water Dives: The 4 open water dives are done at an area lake/scuba park or on a dive trip (must be done over a 2 day period).
Wreck Diving - Dive Reel, Penetration LineForms Required: Students training will need to complete the three (3) forms: Liability Release, Statement of Understanding, and Medical Statement prior to entering the water.

Materials/Equipment Required: Wreck Diver Specialty Manual. Recommended: The Wreck Diver Specialty DVD.



Wreck Diving - RMS RhoneLength of Course: If you have read the entire Wreck Diver Specialty Manual, completed the knowledge reviews and watched the entire video prior to coming to class, the classroom session should take approximately 1 - 1.5 hours depending upon class size.
