TDI Log Books filled out and signed by the instructor

Course is three full days, usually sign-in on a Thursday night, get the paperwork concluded, then Friday we go through the materials and the hands-on session using the Superlite 27's, or AGA's if you have/use them, then to the confined water.

Then Saturday we head to the "nice water" and each diver makes two separate dives, then tends and then uses the console. This is on a rotating basis. If you have non-divers we take them though everything except the confined water and in water activities. I do have them try on the helmets to get the idea of what their divers go through.

Then on Sunday we go to the "yukky water" and each diver makes two separate dives, then tends and then operates the console.

Depending on equipment and numbers of students, we usually get done late afternoon on Sunday, in time to travel.

Costs are for the text, materials, certification fees, Klamath County Sheriff Dive rescue team donation per student structured into the costs, and instructor fees. I do have group rates depending on the number of students.

The course is held in Klamath Falls, as that is where the equipment is located. I drive down from Portland on Thursday and the students show up, we meet for one to two hours, depending on circumstances.

Please email if you are interested or want additional information on costs and specific times associated with the training.

Safety Recall Alert - AGA (Interspiro) full face mask

Interspiro Valve Cone Assembly, number 336-190-064 and 336-890-129 (hereafter called valve cone) is being recalled. You must remove and replace the valve cone immediately.

DO NOT DIVE the mask if you are not certain what is in your full face mask.

The recall pertains to AGA full face masks (FFM) with serial numbers from 227000 through 306999 or if your mask was shipped in July of 2002.

The serial # is engraved on the regulator body.

A quick way to determine if your at risk. Remove the intake hose from the mask (2nd stage) - it is "not" necessary to disassemble the regulator for this - look down into the intake. You will see a center cone that is black. If you can see a blue outside ring, this regulator is ok. If you can see only black "DO NOT DIVE THE MASK" until you can determine if it's part of the recall.

Regulator repair work should only be done by an Interspiro regulator technician. Do NOT work on your own mask.

Please email if you need additional help with this recall.

Merry Christmas 2006

Merry Christmas


God Bless

John 1: 1 - 14

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.
7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.
8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.
11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

DAN Training and Education, Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries - Provider, Instructor, and Instructor Trainer Levels

DAN´s Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Provider Course was designed to fill the void in oxygen first aid training available for the general diving public.

This course represents entry level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public in recognizing possible dive related injuries and providing emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.

In DAN´s most recent dive accident record, less than 33% of injured divers received emergency oxygen in the field. Few of those received oxygen concentrations approaching the recommended 100%. DAN and all major diving instructional agencies recommend that all divers be qualified to provide 100% oxygen in the field to those injured in a dive accident.
