PADI Specialty of the month December 2008; Search & Recovery
During my MSDT training after the IDC's the Search & Recovery specialty is among the more popular ones amongst the newly certified PADI Instructors and for a reason!
Now ask yourself, where do you dive? Right, in water. So what happens sooner or later around this water; people loose things. Now, with the knowledge you gain during the Search & Recovery specialty you will be able to find the lost items back.
You get more practical knowledge on how to work with a compass, how to organise and conduct search patterns and how to use a lift bag! Great stuff and loads of fun! The specialty consists of 4 dives and they're all action packed and interesting. You learn how to find big or small items back and how to choose the correct search pattern that is the most effective for the bottom composition where you're searching and not only that, you also learn how to get it back to the surface.
In order to participate you need to be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or Junior Advanced Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization) OR
PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver AND PADI Underwater Navigation certifications (or qualifying certification from another organization) and the minimum age is 12 years old.
