CDAA Deep Cavern Diver Course

Feb ’15

6:00 pm

Perth Scuba offers the Cavern Divers Association of Australia (CDAA) Deep Cavern Diver Course rating being taught by Instructor Joseph Bicanic over two weekends, kicking off on Friday 20th February (evening) and finishing on Sunday 1st March 2015.

The Course:
The Deep Cavern Course is the amalgamation of skills and knowledge necessary to safely dive in Cavern and Sink hole rated sites. Training covers areas that may have zero visibility and the potential for unlimited visibility. A maximum training depth of 40m is recommended.
The Deep Cavern course content will consist of the equivalent of five full days of theory and diving as a minimum. The Course structure can be scheduled over non-consecutive days, evenings and weekends and need not be taught over consecutive days.

Cavern Site:
Defined as body of water which has a maximum depth of 20 metres, slight overhangs, near vertical ascents and where daylight is always visible (eg limestone caverns, dams, flooded quarries, lakes etc). The maximum linear penetration allowed is 40 metres from the surface.

Sink hole Site:
Defined as a body of fresh water which can have large passages (no restrictions too small for two divers to swim adjacent to each other) and which exceeds 20 metres in depth. The maximum linear penetration allowed is 60 metres from the surface. The CDAA recommends a maximum depth of 40m on air.

Prerequisites:
Hold an Advanced Open Water level recreational SCUBA diver certification or equivalent and be qualified as an Open Water diver for a minimum of 12 months.
Have logged a minimum of 25 dives (post Advanced Open Water level) totalling a minimum of 20 hours, including at least two night dives and five dives deeper than 25 metres.
Be a minimum of 18 years old.
