SCUBA Review Training Dives

1. Assemble, adjust, prepare, put on and disassemble scuba equipment. 2. Perform a pre-dive safety check. 3. Demonstrate appropriate deep-water entry. 4. Adjust for proper weighting — float at eye level at the surface with no or minimal air in the BCD, while holding a normal breath. 5. Alternately breathe from snorkel and regulator without lifting the face from the water.

6. Descend using the five-point method. 7. Recover and clear a regulator at depth. 8. Remove, replace and clear the mask. 9. Respond to air depletion by signaling “out of air,” and securing and breathing from an alternate air source supplied by a buddy. Continue for at least one minute while swimming. 10. Ascend properly using an alternate air source and establish positive buoyancy at the surface.

11. Breathe effectively from a free-flowing regulator for at least 30 seconds. 12. Use both oral and low-pressure BCD inflation to become neutrally buoyant. Gently rise and fall in a controlled manner, during inhalation and exhalation. 13. Ascend using the five-point method. 14. Remove, replace, adjust and secure the weight system at the surface in water too deep in which to stand, with minimal assistance (PADI Scuba Divers – remove only). 15. Simulate a controlled emergency swimming ascent by swimming horizontally for at least 9 meters/30 feet while emitting a continuous sound.

16. Using buoyancy control Hover for at least 30 seconds, without kicking or sculling. 17. Swim without a mask for at least 15 meters/50 feet, then replace and clear the mask. 18.
