The Self-Reliant Specialty Diver Course has two parts:

This includes proper dive planning using air consumption rate calculations, life support system redundancy, and independent management of dive emergencies.
- 3 x Open Water Dives
- Performing an air consumption rate swim to gather information for later calculation.
- Switching to a redundant air supply system during simulated emergency situations.
- Swimming without a mask.
- Navigating to various points, including your exit.
- Using a DSMB.
The course takes place over 2-3 days.
Courses are scheduled on demand.
