    Now I know what the M in CMAS stands for....

    So what does the 'A' stand for ?
    1st rule of diving. Make sure that the number of ascents equals the number of descents.


    Of course. I am talking complete and utter balls, you know?

    What are the prerequisites? Surely it should be for any agency, no real skills or knowledge necessary....

    TDC in Portsmouth were the first in the UK to offer the Reel & SMB Course - extremely worth while. They also offer Full Face Mask, O2 provider and a newly aquired Twinset Diver. Soon to come will be Shore Diver too.

    I've also heard of River Diver in Cairns (believe CDC are the host) and Underwater Basket Weaving (urban legend or real deal?) and their is also Extreme Ironing......

    Talking

    I've done the "Chamber Awareness Specialty" at the DDRC is Plymouth. A great day out and a real eye opener on the work that goes on down then.

    We have also done a Club trip to the Blue Planet Aquarium and completed "The Shark Awareness Specialty.

    For those of you that work in a Dive Centre and are aware of EVE (Electronic Virtual Employee) its a Dive Centre Management peice of Software. Well... you can do a distinctive in that as well by the company that wrote it!

    We have been thinking of writing one for our new staff called the "How to pack a Dive Van correctly rather than just throwing stuff in"... Specialty "!

    ah, the "Dispatch Manager Distinctive Specialty" also known as "Do it my way or I'll throw a PADDY distinctive specialty" (clever play on words eh???)

    what about, for those who are thinking of writing a distinctive specialty, a "How to write a Distinctive Specialty" distinctive specialty????
