Advanced Diver - Practical Lessons

AP1 - Expedition Planning

Lesson Objectives

Dive Leader training included the planning and managing of dives at locations known to the branch. This lesson further extends these activities to the consideration of all the planning implications necessary to conduct a multi-day 'expedition' to an area unknown to the student and remote from the normal area of activity.

Achievement Targets

At the end of this lesson students should:

  • Understand how to use available sources of information to select dives sites in areas unknown to them
  • Understand how to determine site location information
  • Understand how to determine likely conditions on site and the impact of these on dive planning
  • Understand how to develop diving and logistical plans appropriate to diving unknown sites over a multi-day period
  • Understand the additional considerations regarding travel, accommodation and equipment that need to be communicated to participants

Equipment Required

This lesson will require the use of charts and Ordnance Survey maps for an area not known to the branch, Chart 5011, tide tables, dividers, parallel rules, dive guides for the area, magazine articles and other sources of reference information.

AP2 - Dive Planning and Management

Lesson Objectives

This lesson extends the practical Dive Management activities covered during Dive Leader training to include practice in planning and management for sites at locations unknown to the student Dive Manager. By its nature it also consolidates knowledge and skills common to both situations. The lesson also extends the range of considerations to include the logistics necessary for multi day diving at locations remote from the divers’ everyday area of operations.

Achievement Targets

At the end of this lesson students should:

  • Be competent and confident in their ability to perform as Dive Manager for diving at sites unknown to the student involving multi-day diving at locations remote from the divers’ everyday area of operation
  • Including the use of available sources of information to select dives sites in areas unknown to them
  • The determination of site location information
  • The determination of likely conditions on site and the impact of these on dive planning
  • The development of diving and logistical plans appropriate to diving unknown sites over a multi-day period
  • The management of the additional considerations regarding travel, accommodation and equipment that need to be communicated to participants
