To be at least 18 years old or 10 with parental consent.
Standards wise we require you to have at least had the Discover Scuba Diver experience, but we still suggest to partecipate this program only after or, even better, during your Open Water Diver course.
Introducing a diver to the benefits of controlling his buoyancy usually has a great positive effect, an effect that will enhance the diver’s sense of enjoyment and feeling of accomplishment. This specialty is designed to increase the open water diver’s understanding of the factors that influence buoyancy, and to train the diver how to use the means available to him as methods for controlling his buoyancy. The added benefits to the marine and freshwater environments, cannot be overstated; as well as a diver that has better control of himself in conjunction with his environment.

The program includes various dry runs practicing body position and propulsion tecniques that will feed your muscle memory.
You will be introduced to the scuba configuration and land drill trim and propulsion, together with different buoyancy skill.

After every dive you will go through video sessions in the classroom with your instructor who will show what and how to improve your performance.
