Computers in the Classroom

Instead of learning and using the RDP (dive tables), all of our Open Water scuba students will train using on one of our Oceanic scuba dive computers. Dive computers have become a standard piece of equipment for today’s scuba divers so we feel a new diver should learn how to use and understand this essential but uncomplicated piece of scuba equipment from the start!
