In addition to the formal courses, here at Rock Salt Scuba we offer a number of non-certification workshops that are intended to either give you the opportunity to improve your dive skills in certain areas or get a feel for what is involved in some of our training.
Each of the workshops we offer naturally leads in to at least one of the courses we offer and many of the skills conducted in the workshop may be credited towards on going training. However, as their is no pre-defined set of skills, each workshop may be tailored to suit the participants.
We offer both half day and full day workshops in the following areas:
Buoyancy & Trim
Many divers lack the buoyancy control skills required for even basic dives. Our buoyancy workshop focuses on ensuring that divers are correctly weighted and have finesse in terms of control, positioning, trim and balance. This workshop can be undertaken in either a wetsuit or a drysuit.
Diving in overhead environments such as caverns and wrecks has increased risk, and those risks are much larger when divers are not operating as an effective team. This workshop focuses on effective team protocols and line use for all types of overhead environment diving.
Stage Tanks & Pony Bottles
Whether it's a pony bottle, a stage bottle or a deco bottle - the skills and knowledge needed are the same! This workshop focuses on how to setup and carry an appropriate stage bottle and covers some of the skills associated with their use.
Surface Marker Buoys
A Delayed Surface Marker Buoy should be standard equipment for all divers! This workshop provides an introduction to different types of DSMBs and the their use.
Many divers consider twinsets to be only of use to technical divers doing deep dives. However, the truth is that twinsets have many advantages even for recreational divers. This workshop focuses on common equipment configurations and the specific skills required to dive a set of twin tanks effectively.
Rock Salt Scuba can also tailor a workshop to your individual needs. Please contact us for further details.
