We offer the PADI Adaptive techniques course at Thresher Cove Resort. It’s a new course and well worth getting certified in.

First of all this course focuses on increasing awareness of varying diver abilities. Secondly, explores adaptive teaching techniques to apply when training and diving with physically and mentally challenged divers.

For example, you will learn the best way to understand the limitations these divers have.  In other words, you get to role play being blindfolded. In addition you may have to execute skills with only one arm or leg being used. We try to make this course as realistic as we can.
