Technician Training

Scuba Equipment Service Technicians are the industry's "unsung heroes". As scuba gear essentially allows divers to breathe underwater, the people providing equipment support in the background rarely get the credits they deserve. Here at Scuba Clinic, we see the importance of the role technicians play and are working to fulfil this gap. Our focus is to raise awareness by providing "standardised" education and training in our state-of-the-art facility for those wishing to get into the engineering side of the industry.

We can offer these courses as a "package" as the main advantage of such integration will benefit dive masters and instructors in their personal development and improve employment opportunities. We believe it will as well benefit dive store owners as they will be able to rely on an all-round solid background to run their operations and to service/maintain and operate their equipment. Ultimately it will benefit divers' safety and the community as a whole.

In the compressor operator course, basic principles have been presented. In the advanced course, participants have the opportunity to expand on the previously-gained knowledge and under supervision learn the more in depth skills of system design, maintenance and troubleshooting. The majority of the course will be spent on conducting diagnostic tests, stripping down a compressor, technical inspection of the components, rebuilding the compressor and commissioning of the refurbished unit, in other words, a hands-on experience. Extensive background knowledge on topics such as filtration, electricity and maintenance strategies on a variety of brands and models are also covered.
