Equipment Specialist

The PADI Equipment Specialist course is a continuing education level course for scuba divers which teaches about various types of diving equipment, their servicing and maintenance, and equipment troubleshooting.


In order to enroll in the PADI Equipment Specialist course, you need to be at least 15 years old and a certified PADI Scuba Diver (or equivalent).

Course Structure

During the Equipment Specialist course you will learn about how certain scuba diving equipment is made and when it is appropriate to do simple maintenance on it. You will learn about the various bits and pieces that make up scuba diving equipment such as regulators, BCDs and tank valves, and how often it is required that you have them serviced. When you undergo the practical skills training, you will likely combine the skills you have learned into a single project, such as disassembling/reassembling a piece of equipment, fixing a minor problem, or adjusting something to be more suitable to your requirements. The Equipment Specialist course teaches valuable skills for anyone considering to continue their diving education or for individuals who dive on a steady basis.

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