SDI Solo Diver Course

The SDI Solo Diver Course conducted at 2DiVE4 educates experienced recreational divers on the methods and procedures for safely diving independent of a dive buddy. We realise that many divers dive by themselves, but this in no way makes them ‘solo divers’. They are neither trained nor knowledgeable in the hazards to which they may be exposing themselves. The SDI Solo Diver Course examines the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for planning and conducting solo dives. Completing this course empowers you with specific knowledge, enabling you to make a sound risk analysis when engaging in this type of diving.

This course also strengthens your buddy team skills by stressing dive planning, personal limitations, accident prevention as well as the benefits, potential hazards and proper procedures of diving solo. In the SDI Solo Diver Course you will also learn the the additional equipment required for solo diving, and the proper configuration of that equipment. This course is ideally suited to Digital Underwater Photography and underwater video divers.

The SDI Solo Diver Course is not suitable for every diver because divers must be willing to make the necessary commitment to train and equip themselves to manage the added risks that solo diving involve.
