The purpose of the course is to familiarise divers with the skills, knowledge, planning, organisation, procedures, techniques, problems, hazards and excitement of diving on wrecks. The course is intended as a safe, supervised introduction. It will cover research & location of wrecks, search & recovery techniques, salvage rights, wreck surveys and the techniques involved in safely diving and penetrating a variety of wrecks.
