Following the preliminary training in Hebron Hall, Cardiff, for the PADI Open Water Course, the students are getting ready to complete their qualification after they're four open water dives in South Wales on the weekend of the 20th and 21st. These dives include an open water assessment of the skills they learned in a pool environment, such as mask and equipment skills, along with a navigation section and buoyancy control. As instructors we have been training in order to make sure we ourselves are fully prepared for their safety. This week we have been to Newton in Porthcawl where we updated our first aid and lifesaving skills which involved advanced oxygen tank usage. Will all this training done we are sure that the upcoming schools and activities will run smoothly. The Cardiff and Swansea schools are also displaying a keen interest and have been enquiring into the PADI Open Water qualification. Hopefully this means that we will soon have many more prospective students wishing to learn this qualification from us. Its a good season for scuba diving.
