Once you are done in the classroom, you will be able to go to a pool or a controlled diving area. When you go through this controlled dive, you will learn how to use your gear properly and you will get a feel for your equipment and how to use your equipment. This is an important part of your training because it allows you to become familiar with the basics of diving.
