Project Description

We are Boston’s premier diving education center for Advanced Buoyancy Classes and other scuba lessons in Massachusetts and New England!

About The Course:

Overview

Buoyancy is one of the hardest skills to master, especially as a newer diver. Even though this concept is trained in at an open water level, there is just so many other things to focus on that it seems to never get the full attention it deserves. The ECD Advanced Buoyancy Workshop will take you through refined proper weighting procedures, our ECD-specific instincts and habits, equipment considerations, trim, proper breathing techniques and the disadvantages of being over weighted. This program is perfect for those who feel like they are just working too hard underwater or those who feel like their weight system is just too heavy! Consisting of 1 session in the pool, you’ll be surprised how much more control you have while diving.

Perfect Buoyancy is a POOL ONLY specialty. Make sure to get to the pool 15 – 20 minutes ahead of time.

Before Class

Note- All the paperwork you’ll need, along with a what to do before class checklist is located in the corresponding tab

Before your Class there is a bit of paperwork you’ll have to fill out. The most important piece is the medical, which can be printed out and brought to the pool before class starts.

Risk Awareness Videos

The most important thing to do before class is to fill out your medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer “YES” to any of the questions. If so no big deal – you’ll just need to get a doctors’ sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors’ note is in the same file as the medical – Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer “YES” to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors’ note BEFORE getting in the pool.
