Intro To Cave Instructor

This course introduces two new scenarios which pose a safety threat while cave diving, the lost line and lost diver drills. Both drills are taught with and without visibility. Instruction begins in the classroom, continues in an elaborate land drill in the jungle, and culminates in practicing both drills inside the cave. This course can be taught in either backmount or sidemount. During your assisting and instructor training we will break down the teaching methods and mechanics behind these two core exercises in the cave diving curriculum and give you the skills needed to safely and efficient take your teaching to the next level.
