Why Don’t We Apply The Discover Scuba Philosophy Beyond Open Water?
A Discover Scuba experience is a great way to get non-divers acquainted with scuba.Why don’t we do this with our continuing education courses?
Why not: Discover Advanced Open Water?
Some instructors utilize multilevel training – introducing Open Water Divers to the Rescue Diver program because they’re sharing a large pool with a Rescue class, for example. This is great if you can do it.
Another way to promote your con-ed courses is to have a Discover Continuing Education Pool Day. Here are a few things you could offer:
- Rescue demo’s
- DPVs into the pool
- A buoyancy clinic
- Create a “reef” out of plastic toys for divers to photograph
- A topside navigation course
- Dry suit demo’s
To get the creative juices flowing, here is a sample event checklist.
