Sisters Arianna and Meagan are on holiday and are looking for something to experience together while they are away. Their friend suggests scuba diving as they both enjoy being in the water so they search for a local dive centre to go and see what is available. Once they arrive at the centre they meet the manager, Celeste. Their first question to Celeste is to ask what their options for experiencing diving would be as Meagan is blind.

Post a Comment. As you are no doubt aware, there have been a few changes to the Discover Scuba Diving DSD course during the last year or so. The suggestions below will help you achieve this but please refer to the instructor guide for the full outline. What has changed? Rationale: Provides additional preparation and heightened supervision for participants in confined open water.

Rationale: Helps to ensure participants understand and accept basic dive safety principles. Why have PADI made these changes? Discover Scuba Diving participants have the least experience and least training of all our course participants. The goal of the DSD is to introduce them to the underwater world in a safe and enjoyable format. The new standards check student understanding of basic dive safety and ensure increased participant skill at pool and confined open water level.

Increased knowledge and ability increases legal protection for you and gives your students greater confidence which leads to greater enjoyment and an increased likelihood of them continuing diving. How can we implement the new DSD? The briefing can be done either at the dive centre or at the dive site.

Just follow the DSD flip chart or cue card and explain the basic dive safety principles to them and how they will be applied to the DSD they are doing. Then ask the students to complete the Knowledge Review - it takes just a couple of minutes and serves to address any misunderstandings prior to getting in the water.

Under the watchful eye and close control of a professional diver, a complete novice can go from being an envious bystander to seeing the underwater world themselves in less than an hour. And what is involved? What are the benefits to the participant? And why are they such a boon for dive centers and staff the world over? The participant must be at least 10 years old, physically fit, and have the appropriately signed RSTC medical and liability releases. So, what is a DSD session? What is involved?
