Scuba Technician Course
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech recently completed the training for Janine Tate from her Compressor Operator, Gas Blender, Service Technician and Oxygen Service Technician Course conducted over several days at our technical diving school at the resort on Koh Tao Island.
The compressor operator course trains scuba divers in the s operating and serving of a scuba diving compressor for filling scuba tanks. After that course came the skills for filling scuba tanks with nitrox or enriched air nitrox. This method includes many different skills with partial pressure, continuous flow, oxygen handling and operating.
After all the hot and sweaty compressor work was completed Janine moved on to servicing and cleaning scuba diving regulators and further regulators designed for use with technical diving including oxygen cleaning.
The service technician course introduces students to trouble shooting, stripping and fixing regulators.
Janine, who is already a Divmaster took this training to learn more about the back of shop skills and how to service her own regulator after having poor servicing in the past. Undoubtedly these skills will enhance her employment and her resume/cv in the future.
