The PADI Equipment Specialist Course with OLYMPUS DIVE CENTER

Why is my 2nd stage leaking? What’s this annual service thing all about? Is there a difference between a low-pressure plug and a high-pressure one? Have these questions come up during your latest dive adventure? Join us for an Equipment Specialist Seminar and learn how regulators really work, how they differ and what you can do to get them working again quickly. We will also help you put together a useful "save a dive" kit. This is not a Manufacturers Technician course, but you will come away knowing there’s a lot more to your equipment than you thought. Be safer, be the hero on the boat, don’t let exotic trips get ruined!
