Good diving begins with good tech!

We show you how they look on the inside and what happens during professional servicing. We also spend some time on the difference between warm and cold-water tech and show you examples of each.

ADV and Wing Jackets are the most common types of BCDs. We explain how they work, the pros and cons of each, and what to do to maintain them. Please be aware that this course does NOT certify you to service your own equipment.

Wetsuits, Drysuits & Neoprene

We show you the different types of suits, how to care for and maintain your neoprene gear, and how to fix small scratches and holes.
