The purpose of the Self-Reliant Diver specialty course is to recognise and

accept the role of the buddy system and its contributions to diver safety
while identifying and developing self-reliance and independence while
diving. There are two reasons for an experienced diver to take the
Self-Reliant diver course:

  • To develop the skills of planning and carrying out dives without a partner when preferred or necessary.

  • To sharpen skills of diving self-reliance, making the diver a stronger
    partner in a dive pair or team.

    This course covers when diving alone may be applicable, and the need

  • to compensate for those situations, including dive planning, 
  • life support system readiness, adaptive training, equipment and responsibility.
  • This course is an introduction to self-reliant diving that helps student divers
    develop the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary to rely on them-
    selves first, whether or not they are diving with a partner, including

  • The value and application of the buddy system.

  • The philosophy of, and motivation for, diving without a partner.

  • Potential risks of diving alone, and how to manage those risks.

  • The value of equipment redundancy and what back-up equipment is

  • Dive planning and gas management.
