3 Conduct Dives - 3 Goals and Value of Open Water Training Dives  What are the four goals of open water training? 1. Knowledge and skill application  Divers apply what they’ve learned and deal with real conditions  Training assists with transfer of knowledge and skills to a real setting  Repetition helps cement learning and builds confidence  What are the four goals of open water training? 1.

7 Conduct Dives - 7 Divers who feel good about their skills and abilities can enjoy their dive experiences – free from worry and anxiety

8 Conduct Dives - 8 Set Up  What aspects of a dive site should you consider when selecting one for open water training dives?  Site should meet dive’s needs relative to depth, topography, water movement and ease of supervision  Site and conditions should represent typical local diving  If possible, use a variety of dive sites to give divers a perspective on evaluating and handling different conditions  What aspects of a dive site should you consider when selecting one for open water training dives?  Site should meet dive’s needs relative to depth, topography, water movement and ease of supervision  Site and conditions should represent typical local diving  If possible, use a variety of dive sites to give divers a perspective on evaluating and handling different conditions

19 Conduct Dives - 19 Always conclude a training dive by:  Logging the dive and signing log books and training records  Consider having divers sign your log book and note their accomplishments using the Skills Record section  Record the dives on the Student Record File or appropriate form  Logging the dive and signing log books and training records  Consider having divers sign your log book and note their accomplishments using the Skills Record section  Record the dives on the Student Record File or appropriate form

20 Conduct Dives - 20 Open Water Training Dive Management (Workshop) Assigned dive site _______________  What special logistical, equipment or staffing needs are there for this dive?  Where will you anchor the surface support station and attach necessary lines?  Where will you position student divers and assistants (if any) to conduct the skills for this dive?  How will you sequence the skills within the dive?  What else do you need to consider to make sure student divers can meet performance requirements?  How much time will you have for an underwater tour?

21 Conduct Dives - 21 Preparing an Open Water Teaching Presentation  How do open water teaching presentations differ from confined water teaching presentations?  You primarily ask student divers to apply already learned skills – emphasizing how to adapt skills to the environment  You rarely demonstrate a skill – you build upon skills divers have already mastered  How do open water teaching presentations differ from confined water teaching presentations?  You primarily ask student divers to apply already learned skills – emphasizing how to adapt skills to the environment  You rarely demonstrate a skill – you build upon skills divers have already mastered

22 Conduct Dives - 22 Preparing a Presentation  Presentations differ...  Logistics and procedures for control are more important because the open water environment is not as predictable as confined water  Open water logistics dictate an integrated approach to skill briefings  Presentations differ...  Logistics and procedures for control are more important because the open water environment is not as predictable as confined water  Open water logistics dictate an integrated approach to skill briefings

23 Conduct Dives - 23 Preparing a Presentation  How can you organize an open water teaching presentation consistent with the evaluation criteria?  Four areas of evaluation criteria:  Briefing  Problem solving  Control and Delivery  Debriefing  How can you organize an open water teaching presentation consistent with the evaluation criteria?  Four areas of evaluation criteria:  Briefing  Problem solving  Control and Delivery  Debriefing

24 Conduct Dives - 24 Preparing a Presentation  Briefing (not necessarily in this order)  Introduction and Overview — Introduce skills to be covered and a brief statement welcoming the divers  Value — A realistic reminder of why student divers learned the skills and a reason to apply the skills in open water  Objective — A clear statement of the measurable performance requirements  Briefing (not necessarily in this order)  Introduction and Overview — Introduce skills to be covered and a brief statement welcoming the divers  Value — A realistic reminder of why student divers learned the skills and a reason to apply the skills in open water  Objective — A clear statement of the measurable performance requirements

25 Conduct Dives - 25 Preparing a Presentation  Briefing...  Skill Review — Quick reminder of the key steps including suggestions for accomplishing the skills in open water — do not reteach skills  Conduct — Clear description of how skill practice will be organized – positions, sequence, roles, etc.  Signals — Reminder of the signals used to indicate each skill and guide practice  Briefing...  Skill Review — Quick reminder of the key steps including suggestions for accomplishing the skills in open water — do not reteach skills  Conduct — Clear description of how skill practice will be organized – positions, sequence, roles, etc.  Signals — Reminder of the signals used to indicate each skill and guide practice

27 Conduct Dives - 27 Preparing a Presentation  Problem solving  Anticipate problems and make provisions to correctly respond or prevent them  Allow divers to self-correct as long as safety isn’t compromised, however, immediately correct problems that put divers at risk  After correcting a problem, help divers understand what went wrong and how to prevent the problem — identifying the problem and then reinforcing proper technique  Problem solving  Anticipate problems and make provisions to correctly respond or prevent them  Allow divers to self-correct as long as safety isn’t compromised, however, immediately correct problems that put divers at risk  After correcting a problem, help divers understand what went wrong and how to prevent the problem — identifying the problem and then reinforcing proper technique
