This course is designed to be taught in conjunction with the PADI Public Safety Diver course and will allow the student to participate in their role as a PSD Surface Support Specialist. The PSD Surface Support Specialist plays a vital role on a Public Safety Dive Team. The divers’ wellbeing, the team’s effectiveness and the mission’s success all hinges on their ability to do their job. With this in mind, it is imperative that the PSD Surface Support Specialist obtain a solid foundation in Public Safety Diving. This course can also be taught separately from the Public Safety Diver course if necessary.
