Oceanic and PADI Introduce Computer Diver Distinctive Specialty Course

Oceanic Worldwide has teamed up with PADI Americas to develop several distinctive specialty courses for model-specific Oceanic dive computers.

Oceanic has developed instructor outlines for several PADI Oceanic Computer Diver Distinctive Specialty courses. The outlines contains three sections - course standards, knowledge development and open water dive performance requirements and are available for free download to all renewed PADI Instructors at Qualified PADI Instructors can apply directly to PADI for approval to teach these distinctive specialty courses using these outlines.

"The purpose of the PADI Oceanic Computer Diver Distinctive Specialty Courses are to educate scuba divers on the proper use of model-specific Oceanic personal dive computers," says Dan Emke, Oceanic President. "PADI advocates the use of dive computers in their training programs and Oceanic, in full support of this initiative, has partnered with DiveNav to develop multimedia materials to facilitate the education of divers planning to use specific Oceanic Dive Computers."

"By using these product-specific specialty outlines, PADI Instructors can quickly and easily offer turnkey training tailored to Oceanic dive computers," says Jeff Nadler, Industry and Governmental Relations Executive for PADI Americas. "For PADI Dive Centers and Resorts who are Oceanic dealers, these courses are a great vehicle for increasing computer sales."

The entire Oceanic Dive Computer line and PADI Oceanic Computer Diver Distinctive Specialty course outlines will be featured at the DEMA Show, Oceanic Booth # 1830.

More information about the PADI Oceanic Computer Diver Distinctive Specialty courses will be provided at the DEMA Show during the Oceanic seminar "Dive Computer Training" that will be held on Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 1:00-2:00 PM in Room S110. REGISTER NOW
