Free ‘Revive Your Dive’ Refresher Course To Take Place This Weekend In Florida

-

The Florida Keys Visitor Center will host the annual, free Revive Your Dive event this coming weekend, in advance of the upcoming lobster season.

The July 20-21 2013 event will include a Scuba Refresher Course, Fitness to Dive Consultation, Scuba Equipment Inspection and Boat Voluntary Safety Check, according to organizer Reef Ministries’ website.

Each year numerous divers get injured or even die during the Florida Lobster Mini-Season and first weeks of the regular season, the website states. Medical conditions (mostly cardiac events), poor diving procedures and techniques, and equipment problems are often factors in these needless accidents. Divers understand the need for scuba refresher training, health screens and equipment servicing but are often reluctant to pursue them due to the high costs and time associated with doing them.

Requirements to participate in the event are:

  • Open Water Diver (or higher) certification from a national/international scuba training agency
  • Completed Medical Questionnaire
  • Actual certification card or official verification of certification printout from a national/international scuba training agency

Each day, participants will be put into a specific group, with Group 1 beginning at 8:00am and the final Group 8 beginning at 3:00pm.

While the event is free, participants are encouraged to consider a donation to Reef Ministries, Inc., according to the website.

As a diver you realize that unfortunate restorative conditions (principally cardiovascular events), unfortunate diving techniques and gear issues are the most well-known considers identifying with swoop identified mischances.
