The Apprentice Cave Diver course is the 3rd in a series of 4 classes designed to teach students how to safely cave dive. Unlike the Intro to Cave course where a student has the option to do class in a single tank with a Y or H-Valve, this class will be completed entirely in doubles. However, this class can be done in either side mount or back mount.
The Apprentice Cave Diver loses the mainline restriction that is placed on Intro to Cave divers. The restriction of diving to 1/6th gas supply on a set of double tanks is also lifted. Apprentice Cave Divers can now dive using 1/3 of their gas supply to enter the cave and can make simple navigational decisions.
In class we will further drive home the necessary skills taught in Cavern and Intro to Cave. You will run reels, do S-Drills, Lost Buddy and Lost Line drills just to name a few. We will teach and test your navigational skills and your sense of direction. Upon completion of this class you will be one step closer to Full Cave diver while enjoying some of the greatest diving in the world.
