This course teaches the setup and use of twin tanks. It is not necessary to have prior experience. Although this can help there is also value in being taught to do it right from the start. Many people practice and struggle to achieve a skill when a simple adjustment can make the skill straightforward and easy. Courses can be structured to allow time to practice before we go to Mt. Gambier.

This is an ideal companion course for the Deep Cavern course as it covers the decompression component absent in that course and which is relevant for anyone doing multiple 40m dives in a day or who wants to extend bottom time and get the most out of their dive. There are no extra experience requirements for this course and divers can do it immediately after Deep Cavern. The dives done during this course will contribute to the dive experience requirements of Cave and the Shaft and the extra skill refinement will help during Cave (and even Adv. Cave as stage tank use is taught).
Interested in a course that's not scheduled or is full? Let me know. I run courses when I have enough interest and sometimes people have to drop out thereby freeing up spaces. I currently have a lot of interest in a few courses and am just waiting on one or two people to make up the numbers.
