About this course

For those occasions when a buddy may not be around

$595 - 2 days

This course has been developed to focus on the need for divers to be more self-sufficient for those occasions when a buddy may not be around. It is not a course for everyone and certainly not one to be taken lightly so the pre-requisites have been set accordingly.
