Underwater Lighting: Monkey Diving in the Funhouse

Working underwater requires technicians to have very developed buoyancy and movement control while working with and carrying equipment. The fourth class in the series is centered around an underwater obstacle course which will require students to execute all of the skills learned in the previous classes while carrying equipment and running cable. The obstacle course, made from lightweight PVC (which will allow for emergency ascents), will have changes in elevation, sharp turns, and odd shaped passages.  Special emphasis will be placed on working in tight confines, overhead environments, and in situations that require non-traditional equipment configurations such as side-mount, and back-plate only diving.
