Have you ever wondered what you should have in your save-a-dive kit, how to change an o-ring, what the difference between a high and low volume mask is, or why you hear other divers blasting air out of their tanks after a dive? Well, with the Equipment Specialist course, you'll learn the answers to these questions and more! Join our tech Kelly for plenty of riveting equipment demos and easy on-site dive saving demos and earn a specialty certification while you're at it!
The goals of PADI Equipment Specialist training are to:
- Develop your practical knowledge of the theory, principles, and operation of diving equipment.
- Enable you to perform routine, recommended care and maintenance procedures.
- Enable you to store equipment properly.
- Provide you with simple suggestions for comfortable equipment configurations.

Certification means that you will be able to:
- Decide which diving equipment maintenance procedures you can do and which should be left to professionals.
