Course Outline

Management is the consideration of events that happen before and after diving, including problem management and rescues. This unit does not detail the actual diving and/or rescue procedures: Those are detailed in their respective units.

In this unit, we cover the before and after of a dive, which is very important in regard to the self-rescue perspective. If management of the dive is focused on to start with, a rescue may never need to be performed. The way a diver approaches planning a dive, his or her attitude to safety, and the inclusion of his or her buddies in the process are all important.

The following are the unit objectives.

  • Explain why you need to plan dives
