Cave and Wreck Instructor

In scuba diving, an overhead environment is a situation where there is no open water overhead, and thus the diver in an emergency cannot escape upwards to atmosphere if his breathing set malfunctions. This can arise in ice diving, cave diving and wreck diving.

As there are so many skills and techniques common to both wreck and cave diving, our classes like Cavern Instructor or Advanced Wreck Instructor present the student with the foundational teaching skills that are necessary to be a safe, thinking instructor in any overhead environment.
