The recreational diving industry is very looseIy regulated when it comes to who is qualified to service diving equipment. It can be as simple as a dive shop sending a staff member with little to no servicing experience to a one day manufacture service course and they are then able to service that brand of equipment. Manufacture service courses are a means for manufactures to educate technicians on their set configurations, regulations, service procedures, warranty policies and new products. They are not designed to teach the fundamental skills and knowledge required to inspect, service, test and tune diving equipment. This task is simply left up to the relevant dive shop owners and this standard of training varies store to store. For a technician to service a particular brand of diving equipment they must not only complete the manufactures service course, they must also be approved by the manufacturer as and authorised service technician / service centre.
At Dive Repairs I only service brands I am certified and authorised for. I hold over ten years experience diving and servicing scuba, helmets, r-breathers and decompression chambers. To ensure I am certified as a dive technician in the loosely regulated recreational diving industry I have completed various technician courses which are listed below.
It is important you know your technician's credentials because if they service your equipment with an out of date certification, it voids the warranty of your equipment. This is also the case for technicians who hold a certificate but are not an authorised technician by the brand themselves.
If your technician doesn't make their certifications readily availably for your it is important you ask for them. You need to know your gear is in the right hands.
