The Challenge of Thinking: One Old Salty Dog’s FACTS of Diving Workshop

The Challenge of Thinking: One Old Salty Dog’s FACTS of Diving Workshop

Formal dive training is knowledge-based and undertaking specialist courses is an excellent way to gain knowledge and experience in specific diving activities. Divers however, have to build their own bridges to link the various courses and information provided.  Many divers believe they understand diving from being properly trained. Many other divers believe they understand diving from experience. Both groups receive their understanding passively. It just is! Accept the challenge and learn to think about, and understand the ‘FACTS’ of diving.

The workshop is based on the experience of Jeremy’s 20+ years and thousands of dives as a dive professional. It will challenge you to think and question why things are as they are. Real life scenarios will be discussed. Through this INTERACTIVE session your understanding of diving practices and procedures will be improved and, as a result, you will be a more knowledgeable diver.
