When it comes to Diving Instructor Course Australia, the task of the companion is to check the assembly and wearing of his equipment on the one hand, and to carry out appropriate checks on those he is preparing to accompany. Naturally the degree of control and, in particular, the attitude towards the accompanying persons varies according to the level and experience of the latter.
A student must be scrupulously followed at every stage of the dressing, while for a subtrade already patented and it plunges with a certain continuity, the control can be faster, though no less complete. In this second case it may be appropriate not to be unnecessarily pedantic, to insist that the verification be carried out reciprocally between the two members of the diving couple.
The pre-dive safety check must follow a logical sequence as shown by the Diving Instructor Course Australia. Shifting attention from one element to another in the dive group, from one component to another in the equipment, without following a logical order and, as such, reproducible each time, can lead to neglecting an important step without having any ran encounter which highlights our forgetfulness.
The mechanisms that help set a logical and reproducible control sequence are essentially two. The check lists are nothing but a list of checks to be performed according to a precise logical sequence. Transcribed on waterproof material, such as plastic or plasticized cardboard, they can be attached to the BCD (or put into a pocket of it) and then read immediately before the dive, at least even in water.
There are several examples of checklists already prepared, generally produced by diving schools or published on specialized journeys. The escort could use an already prepared check list or, alternatively, build his own, updating it with experience and adding new equipment.
Although undoubtedly very comfortable and of certain validity, the check lists have some negative aspects linked to their rigidity (it is difficult to have one for each type of dive) and the risk that they themselves may be forgotten, in this case leaving the diver unprepared.
A flow is the decomposition of a verification articulated in multiple simpler actions linked together by a logical order and, as such, reproducible. A flow is therefore composed of a precise sequence of repeatable actions that can be easily recalled to the mind since they are associated with a reference, however known. The most typical example, and the most functional system of pre-dive control, is to verify the assembly and wearing of the equipment starting from the head and descending down to the feet. In this way it is reasonably certain that the gaze falls on each of the elements to be controlled without risking to forget someone.
