The 'Dry suit diver' course is a fundamentals course both for recreational divers, that want to have a good confort and the max fun during their dives, and divers that want to start technical diving.
Quite often the use of a dry suit is considered 'easy', but in reality its use is more complex. So it could happen to see even technical divers who do not have a real mastery of a dry suit.
STDA sets the max ratio Instr/diver of 1:2.
The program develops in three steps:
- theory (development of dry suits usage, types and manufacturing material, managing of buoyancy and trim, failures management): minumum 2 hours classroom or webinar
- confined water sessions with exercises
- minimum 2 open water dives
