UWE and Ocean Quest were out this weekend working hard with our Dive Masters in Training, assisting with the Advanced Open Water course, as well as diving off Sea Dragon in Howe Sound where we conducted a Sidemount Charter. Overall things went very well. Our Dive Masters in Training split up on Saturday in two groups one with three and the other with four. We did Discover Scuba Diving training in the Ocean, SMB Deployments and then my favourite slow ascent practice which was in preparation for the Sidemount Charter the next day, as well for this upcoming weekend when we do our Deep Dive Scenario.
Our Dive Masters in Training did a fantastic job, assisting in the Advanced Open Water course, where I gather there was a good learning curve in what it means to to assist in training, and being ready for anything arising that must be dealt with. There were currents and strong winds to deal with as well, a pair of divers needing assistance on the surface which had no ties to our training.
On Sunday, the Dive Masters in Training lead the dives off the Sea Dragon charter where there was a huge learning curve having to deal buddy separation, bad visibility while also assisting on the ship preparing the the customers entry into the water. Overall our Dive Masters in Training did a great job!! Well Done!!
