2008 Commercial diver training

28 10 2008

The commercial diver training course offered by the Maritime Archaeology Programme is off to a good start. This year ten students have enrolled in the course and weekly diver training has started this month at the Southern Denmark University Odense campus.

Over the next few months students will cover the basics of equipment configuration and use, safety procedures and complete many drills and tasks in the pool before openwater dives in early 2009.

Of course much more of the work happens in the class room where dive theory is covered but the pool is a welcome interruption for all from the books!
