The course of Specialty ESA Deep Diver has been conceived to improve the techniques and the knowledge of scuba divers according to their level. Through the study and the practical experience under control of ESA Instructor, the participant becomes a scuba diver with a greater awareness towards the immersions effected over the 18 meters deep and however within the limits of the recreational underwater activity. The course foresees studying of the manual of Specialty ESA Deep Diver, the elaboration of the information received from the instructor and dives in Open Waters.
The finalities of the course are proposed to prepare the students to dive within limits of the achieved certification, in places that mirror the conditions met during the formative phase, together with a certificated scuba diver, of equal level, and within the limits of non-decompression. Also keeping in mind the knowledge that is obligatorily and the participant needs to reach, the program has been conceived so that to meet possible demands of the single person in terms of time, formality of learning and possible repetition of the different formative phases. The model of the program can be changed by instructor ESA, with the respect to the pre-arranged norms, according to the expectations of the scuba diver, manufacturing the course so that to satisfy student's needs. The course is well delineated, so to guarantee to every participant receiving a certification attesting the phases share formative precise and equal for everybody. The philosophy of the course intends to improve the awareness of scuba divers towards the deep immersion to increase the safety of divers that want to explore particular sites found at a greater depth but however within the limits of the recreational underwater activity. Another purpose of the course is reflecting scuba divers necessities and considering with care the motivations that can justify such a choice.
Just for the role and the implications that the deep immersions can have during the practice of the recreational underwater activity, the specialty course ESA Deep Diver is an important formative wedge, as well as an obligatory requisite to get the qualification ESA Diveleader.
