3 Teach CW - 3 Value and Goals of Confined Water Training Dives  Why is confined water training so important?  Scuba instruction involves developing dive skills  Student divers learn how to dive in the water, not in the classroom  Knowledge development only supports the need to develop skills — it deals with why  In confined water student divers learn, practice and gain confidence in preparation for open water  Why is confined water training so important?  Scuba instruction involves developing dive skills  Student divers learn how to dive in the water, not in the classroom  Knowledge development only supports the need to develop skills — it deals with why  In confined water student divers learn, practice and gain confidence in preparation for open water

4 Teach CW - 4 Value and Goals  Confined water’s importance...  Learning motorskills requires participation, repeated practice and a student diver’s full attention  To learn, divers must be comfortable and feel confident  Confined water offers calm, clear and controlled conditions, without environmental distractions  Confined water’s importance...  Learning motorskills requires participation, repeated practice and a student diver’s full attention  To learn, divers must be comfortable and feel confident  Confined water offers calm, clear and controlled conditions, without environmental distractions

5 Teach CW - 5 Value and Goals  What are five goals of confined water training? 1.Allow for clear skill demonstrations  When student divers see a good demonstration, they better emulate the instructor and perform with fewer errors 2.Make initial student diver practice easier under instructor supervision 3.Encourage repeated skill practice to increase competence — mastery learning  What are five goals of confined water training? 1.Allow for clear skill demonstrations  When student divers see a good demonstration, they better emulate the instructor and perform with fewer errors 2.Make initial student diver practice easier under instructor supervision 3.Encourage repeated skill practice to increase competence — mastery learning
