BSAC Equipment Technician
The BSAC Equipment Technician course helps give divers a greater understanding of how their equipment works. It covers the Aqualung range of equipment starting with un-balanced regulators moving up to over balanced regulators. The course also covers power inflators and BCD repair. During the course the students will be taught the correct procedures to service, repair and trouble shoot the regulators along with the correct cleaning and maintenance procedures. The BSAC Equipment Technician is not an official Aqua Lung repair technician but the course is conducted according to Aqua Lung`s requirements.
The course is conducted over 2 days, including plenty of time after each session for practicing on the equipment
The first section of the course is the Calypso regulator, a popular choice with dive centers as a rental regulator. The student will be given a fully set up regulator (1st stage, 2nd stage, octopus, gauge and LPI hose) exactly how they would receive them in a working environment. They will then be taught the proper sequence for trouble shooting the regulator, then the correct strip down, cleaning and rebuild sequences. As the course goes on the student will gain a greater understanding of how the regulators work and also solving common problems like leaking SPG’s etc. At the end of the session the students will have plenty of time to practice their new skills before moving onto the balanced regulators.
