Our latest blog is from instructor Jim, who decided to go on a little rant about dive planning and the lack thereof! If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Jim you will know that there is nothing he likes to talk about more than the intricacies of diving, the technical aspect of diving and dive planning!
Here is a little snippet of his blog –
“Tables, dive computers and pre dive planning – what’s that all about? Groans and irritations from divers as they have reduced no decompression limits for their repetitive dives. Even worse than that, the terrifying conversation post dive ‘It said STOP and ASC-CEILING, but I didn’t know what that meant.’ Come on, who doesn’t understand what ‘STOP’ means?!
A new favorite course of mine to teach has been the multi-level speciality. It provides my students the opportunity to focus on their pre-dive plan much more extensively than they ever thought. It is a great way to revisit and look at all the different tools for planning that we have at our disposal. Plans, back up plans, gas management and multilevel profiles….these are things that get me excited about diving!!”
