The hands-on disassembly, re-assembly, and adjustment, were crucial to understanding all aspects of regulators, but especially the service technician’s perspective. You quickly realize just how much work goes into the annual service.Rolin B

[I liked] the sharing of information around the room with a bunch of experienced divers connecting what we were learning to what we already know.Joe R
The course is designed to give you a strong working knowledge in the basic theory and application of regulators and the introduction to common scuba tools, special application tools, diagnostic, and tuning tools. This includes a typical service procedure, breakdown of typical parts, types of first and second stage regulators, diagnostic measurements, and typical sounds heard when testing equipment.
The course is followed by hands-on disassembly and assembly of different types of regulators, as well as a demonstration on testing and fine-tuning a regulator.
We recommend buying and reading through Regulator Savvy from Scuba Tools. However, this is not a requirement.

Not necessarily. This course does not qualify you for any certifications. To become a regulator technician, you would need to go through a certification course with each manufacture you wish to service and work for a store that is a dealer.
No. Please do not open your regulator. If you ever have any issues with your regulator, even if you believe you know the solution, bring it into a certified technician. Many manufactures will not follow through with warranties due to non-certified interference.
