UW Communication with OCEAN REEF Full Face Mask
Distinctive Specialty Instructor Course
You are a full face mask Instructor already? Find additional challenges here!

During this course we want to introduce you to how you can effectively communicate underwater using OCEAN REEFs communications network (SUB T, SUB R & SURF). We all respect that silence is one of the most appealing features in this sport but we cannot deny that additional communication can sometimes have implications in terms of safety, research, teaching or simply human interaction.

People who work underwater need to communicate with colleagues (on the surface or underwater), both for logistical support and safety. As a dive professional your intension to dive is not only leisure but to do a great job underwater providing feedback to your students and keeping a safe supervision. These communications tools will help you to provide this, especially in conditions with lower visibility.

This Distinctive Specialty / Distinctive Specialty Instructor Course is offered in all IDC Locations. Please contact me if you are interested in a private event directly at your diving center. OCEAN REEF Inc. products are used during this courses. You can find additional info about OCEAN REEF here.
