Intro Tech Course
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 to a certified technician. Many manufacturers will not follow through with warranties due to non-certified interference.
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 manufacturer you wish to service and work for a store that is a dealer.
We recommend buying and reading through Regulator Savvy from Scuba Tools. However, this is not a requirement. For more information on the book, please visit their site.
The course is designed to give you a strong working knowledge of the basic theory and application of regulators and the introduction to common scuba, special application, diagnostic, and tuning tools. This includes: a typical service procedure, the 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.
