28 years of experience
Our Instructor/technician has more than 28 years of field experience in maintenance and repair of dive equipment. He is trained by many dive equipment manufacturers and maintained over more than 1500 regulators.
Following the required updates set by Scubapro gives us authorization to do maintenance on all Scubapro first and second stages.
Our Scubapro technician will give during the Equipment specialist course a workshop of complete maintenance from a valve, first and second stage and demonstrate what regulator test equipment we use for the final adjustments and testings.
If you have your own regulator set we invite you to bring it with you during the Equipment specialist course and during the workshop we can test the overall performance of it.
Above mentioned experience combined with our regulator testing tools makes us ideally suited to teach this specialty and we promises standards that you will find nowhere in Tenerife.
