PADI Specialty Course Manual: Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV)
Diver Propulsion Vehicles (DPVs) allow you to see more on your dives, as you get from point A to point B a lot faster. This is great for entry and exit points that are not too close to each other. We all know that diving is a rather relaxed sport and that we want to avoid getting out of breath. A DPV reduces your exertion level and still gets you around the dive site in a timely manner.
With a device like this, there are rules that have to be followed in order to stay safe at all times. This course teaches you to maintain your DPV and how to plan dives, including procedures for staying with your buddy. You will gain DPV-handling skills, such as making proper descents and ascents. You will also learn about potential problems and how to deal with them.
This manual comes with a DVD, so you can learn your theory by reading and watching the video. Ask in your local PADI dive shop about their possibilities to complete your course with a Diver Propulsion Vehicle. We hope you enjoy this course and stay safe!
