When scuba equipment malfunctions it is usually at the worst possible moment.
Discovering minor gear problems during your pre-dive safety check - such as a blown o-ring, broken fin strap, or regulator free flow – need not end the dive if you are certified in the PADI Scuba Equipment Specialty.
The course prepares you to manage these basic gear adjustments, carry out regular maintenance, and provide general care for your diving equipment.
Researching further will help you understand how a scuba system works, how it is repaired, and how to 'save the dive'.

The PADI Scuba Equipment Specialist Course does not qualify you as a master technician. Nonetheless, it provides the proper foundation for maintenance and care for the investment you have made in your kit.
Some basic knowledge might also save you losing that precious dive on your next diving vacation. The Equipment Specialty Certification can also be credited towards the Master Scuba Diver rating.
