By diving with a dry suit we cool many times slower. This allows us to extend the dive time. With a dry suit, we can also make scuba dives in water where you normally can not dive in with a (semi) wetsuit because this is irresponsible.

In the WOSD 'Dry suit diver' specialty course, you will learn what types of dry suits there are and what the pros and cons of each type dry suit is. You will also learn what additional components there are for a dry suit. During the practical sessions, you will learn how diving emergencies, which may arise with a dry suit, can be prevented and possibly solve. Upon successful completion of the course, you will become a certified WOSD Dry Suit Diver.
