Scuba Cylinder Visual Inspection Procedures (VIP) Course
Technical Intern learns how to visually inspect a scuba cylinder.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech celebrates the graduation of James Foleher from his TDI Visual Inspection Procedures course conducted during a one day workshop on Koh Tao Island off the coast of Thailand.
The TDI Visual Inspection Procedures course certifies the student to conduct approved maintenance on scuba cylinders and scuba valves which is an annual requirement for dive shops. The process of visual inspection involves removing the scuba cylinder, inspecting inside the tank and conducting maintenance and cleaning before re-sealing. The VIP is also a process involved with Hydro-Static Testing which is typically a 5 year requirement for scuba cylinders.
This is one of many courses James will be involved in during his technical diving internship on his road to become a technical diving instructor.
Special thanks to Dave of AquaTec for letting us use his facilities for teaching this course.
