This Ice Diver course certifies a diver to make tethered dives below the ice. We focus on ice diving related equipment, surface operations and safety protocols, as they relate to Public Safety Dive teams. Day 1 covers classroom learning, cutting an access hole through the ice, and dry drills. Day 2 puts divers in the water to experience diving under the ice, practice underwater skills and communication with surface personnel. Divers completing this training will receive PADI Ice Diving Specialty Certification.
Prerequisite - Be Advanced Open Water Certified, have a medical statement on file (dated within the last 12 months)
