Self Reliant course specialty

Self Reliant. Dive autonomously with safety criteria

We know to dive, you always have to do it with a partner, it’s more fun and safe, but do you need him for everything? We will teach you to be a responsible and self-sufficient diver and learn how to get by if you do not have the help of your partner for any reason.

Learn self-sufficiency while diving with a friend. This course is ideal for photographers, videographers and diving professionals. This course is not just about diving on your own; it’s about being more self-sufficient either in a couple of friends or in a diving equipment. This will make you, in general, a better prepared diver, whatever the situation. You will learn when to dive can only be applicable and how you can compensate for the additional safety that a companion will provide.


  • What it means to be a self-sufficient diver
  • Know how to plan an independent dive safely, including gas requirements
  • How to measure your air consumption so you can calculate your SAC rate

During the course, you will be asked to demonstrate comfort in emergency situations, such as loss of masks and lack of air, and use navigation and estimate the estimated distance to perform a dive.
