Diver Propulsion Vehicle Diver

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Diver specialty course is a scuba diving course which teaches you how to safely use a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DVP) while underwater.


Prerequisites

In order to enroll in the Diver Propulsion Vehicle course, you need to be at least 15 years old and a certified PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent).


Course Structure

During your Diver Propulsion Vehicle specialty course, you will learn and practice different techniques for using a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DVP) while underwater. This may include estimating distances, equalising, ascending and descending, maintaining the buddy system and steering. Your instructor will discuss important aspects to keep in mind while you are using the DPV and certain steps for preparing for your dive. During your open water dives, you will put these techniques into practice by preparing for the dive and touring part of the dive site while using a DPV.

Once you have you completed the Diver Propulsion Vehicle specialty course, you will receive a temporary Diver Propulsion Vehicle certification card, which you can start using right away! You will receive your permanent card about 30-45 days after you have been certified.


Required Equipment

You will be required to have your own mask, fins, and snorkel for the duration of the course. We would also recommend that you have a suitable exposure suit – a wetsuit during the winter months to protect your body from the cold and a lycra, or skin suit for the summer months to protect your body from jellyfish stings and scrapes.
