Topics covered include overseeing technical diving activities and providing surface and in-water support, further the understanding of technical equipment configurations, dive profiles and hazards, train recreational divers to carry up to two stage cylinders and exchange these with technical divers while efficiently communicating within a team, and to respond to and handle rescue situations and technical diving emergencies.
