Twin Set DiverPADI
Minimum age: 15
Course prerequisites: PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
What will I do?
You will have two days of intense twin set training to complete. In our fully equipped multi-media classrooms, you will learn about the many benefits of diving with a twin set configuration. After reviewing the theory with your PADI Instructor, you will practise setting up and diving with a twin set in our onsite heated training pool.
On the second day, you will then put into practice what you learn in a combination of skills during three open water training dives at a local dive site.
During your programme you will learn how to:
- Properly assemble and configure twin set scuba diving equipment.
- Trim your weight system and twin set so you’re perfectly balanced in the water.
- Manage gas and air shutdown drills.
- Respond correctly to potential problems and hazards when twin set diving
How do I get started?
Just pick your dates if you can and pay your £95 deposit. There are no manuals, so you don’t have to worry about any home study before this course. Don’t worry if you can’t commit to a date straight away. There are plenty scheduled throughout the year.
How long will it take?
The Twin Set Diver course takes place over one weekend. Starting on a Saturday at 09:00, you will review the theory behind twin set diving with Instructor then familiarise yourself with diving with a twin set configuration in the pool. On the Sunday you will put your skills into practice during three open water training dives.
What will I need?
The Twin Set Diver programme is open to all divers over the age of 15 years who hold the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification or equivalent.
All the standard scuba equipment you need to complete the programme is included. It is always a good move to buy your own dive computer for future dives, however we will supply one for the Sunday if you prefer.
You will need to fill out a self-certification medical statement. If you have any medical conditions that you think may prevent you from scuba diving, please feel free to contact us and we will try to be of assistance.
All the materials and standard scuba equipment needed to complete the programme are included in the cost. You will need to pay for your entry to the open water dive site and any required air fills while away from the centre. This is approximately £20 for each day.
When can I start?
Call the centre on 0121 706 6628 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability and book your dates.
Where can I go from here?
Once you have completed your Twin Set Diver you have started down a road of discovery. With more gas available to extend your bottom time, your next step may be the PADI Deep Diver Specialty and the PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty.
The Twin Set Diver course is also an excellent preparatory course for further technical diving and so the PADI Tec 40 could be the next course for you.
