Scuba Equipment Service Technician Course
Manuela continues her technical diving internship to service and repair scuba diving regulators.
Koh Tao, Thailand
Big Blue Tech is happy to announce the graduation and certification of Manuela Agbaba from her SDI Equipment Service Technician and TDI O2 Service Technician Course focusing on underwater breathing regulators for scuba diving activities. This course was conducted by Ash Dunn and James Thornton-Allan on Koh Tao Island in Thailand.
All equipment used by divers underwater or in the provision of their breathing gases is fundamentally life support equipment. Scuba regulators and compressors work at extremely high pressures and use innovative engineering design techniques to function correctly.
The repair, adjustment and testing of this equipment is not intuitive even for the mechanically minded or those with formal engineering training in other disciplines. The service information, custom spare parts and special custom tools are usually difficult if not impossible to obtain outside the trade.
Only formal training in the repair and maintenance of div e equipment such as that received during these courses can ensure the continuing safe and reliable operation of life support equipment.
Although Manuela has no aspirations on becoming a scuba diving professional these skills would certainly enhance her employ-ability and skills in the scuba diving industry. Additionally Manuela is certified to conduct service and repair of her own regulator giving her access to spare kits back home and essentially saving her a great deal of money in the long run.
For those seeking specific training courses for regulators like ScubaPro, Apeks and Aqualung you can contact us to find out when these events are happening in Thailand.
