Scuba Professional is the natural successor to Simon Pridmore's first book, Scuba Confidential - An Insider's Guide to Becoming a Better Diver. Whereas Scuba Confidential focused on how to scuba dive, Scuba Professional looks at how diving is taught and how dive operations are conducted. Scuba Professional is an excellent source of out-of-the-box ideas and independent, objective advice for instructors and dive operators. It is also an indispensable guide for those aspiring to become dive professionals with chapters such as "Do You Have What It Takes?" and "Which Training Agency?" In short, this is everything you wanted to know about working in scuba diving but never dared to ask. Scuba Professional is not only for professionals. Serious divers who take more than a passing interest in their hobby and want to know what goes on behind the scenes will be fascinated by the topics addressed and the insights offered. From a dive safety point of view, Simon looks at the bigger picture and, in a series of chapters on avoiding and handling accidents, sets out a framework for developing the safety culture within our sport. He also examines the present state of key aspects of the dive industry and speculates as to the future. "There is quite simply nothing like this book. Scuba Professional offers an invaluable guide to divers who want to excel in the scuba world. This is the ultimate backstage pass into the business of scuba."Jill Heinerth, Underwater Explorer, Technical Instructor Trainer and Filmmaker "Terrific, really good! Simon captures the key characteristics of the diving instruction milieu concisely and with insight and clarity. It took me back to my many years of diving instruction and I was able to tick a mental check box against almost every key point he makes."Associate Professor Simon Mitchell, Consultant Anaesthetist and Diving Physician "Required reading for every scuba professional and anyone with hopes of becoming one. In fact every diver can learn from this distillation of hard-earned wisdom. Simon Pridmore is one of the most thoughtful and readable of divers."Steve Weinman, Editor, Diver Magazine

If you do not yet scuba dive but are thinking of learning, then Scuba Fundamental - Start Diving the Right Way is for you. It takes you from the germ of the idea that you might like to try scuba diving up to the point where you have done around 20 dives. This is not your standard how-to scuba diving manual. It is very different. The purpose of Scuba Fundamental is not to teach you how to dive. A dive instructor will do that. But this book will make the learning process much easier. It will help you make the right choices and avoid the pitfalls that await new and uninformed divers coming into the sport. It will also set you well on the road to becoming a capable and competent lifelong diver. Scuba Fundamental tells you how to make sure you are prepared for a scuba diving course and what a good beginners course should entail. It tells you how to choose a good instructor, how to decide which operators to dive with after you have finished your course and what sort of dives you should be doing when you first start diving. You will learn the many ways in which diving will change your life and also acquire some extremely valuable advice on the etiquette involved in the sport. Throughout the book and especially in the chapter "It Happened to Me" you will be entertained, educated and encouraged by anecdotes from people who are now experienced divers but were once beginners too. There is also an entire section devoted to diving safety, much of which covers vitally important aspects of scuba diving that basic training manuals don't emphasise enough or even leave out completely. The book's message is: start scuba diving the right way and you will be relaxed and ready for the adventure. You will have more fun, make fewer mistakes and be confident in the fact that you are well informed, have made the best choices and have spent your money wisely. Scuba Fundamental is a unique, reliable and essential guide: one that you can trust completely and follow during this formative phase of your scuba diving life. "I wish I'd had this book to read when I learned to dive. I remember being totally confused."Robin Yao, Executive Editor, EZDIVE magazine "This is the book divers should give to friends when they say they want to learn to scuba dive." Ian Thomas, Author and Scuba Instructor Trainer "Pitching a book at the correct level for divers-to-be is fraught with difficulty. Simon Pridmore is a great dive writer, and I think he's finally cracked the problem with Scuba Fundamental." Steve Weinman - Editor, Diver Magazine (UK) "Simon Pridmore's new book is a thorough, sensible and seriously safety oriented guide for new divers. It is also very, very funny. Simon's anecdotes will make old divers laugh until they cry, whilst promising decades of fun and adventure for new divers."Judi Lowe, Scuba Instructor, PhD Scholar and Sustainable Dive Tourism Advisor

We wrote this book to help you understand what is happening and why it happens before, during, and after a dive. Many of you will be preparing for an exam to become a dive professional. This is book tells you all you need to know, no more, no less. We will start off easy with a short introduction to the dive environment, where we look at tides, currents, waves, coasts, ecosystems. Why are there usually two tides per day, but only one Moon? Why do currents follow a certain pattern over the globe? What makes waves big, how do they break at the beach? How many different types of coasts are there, and why? How do marine biologists talk about the marine life they study and describe? Next, we go on with the physics of diving. We will keep the numbers to a minimum, and we promise: no formulas. We will show you how to use your experience as a diver and your common sense to understand and calculate everything. If you have a fear of physics and calculations, as we know many of you have, we will cure you from it. Give it a go. You will calculate buoyancy, air consumption, pressure, and partial pressure with a smile on your face. Well, perhaps that is too much to ask. Without sweating, let's settle for that. Next, we have a look at equipment, but because manufactures can give you so much more information than we can, and because we know you love shopping or looking at brochures, we keep it to the minimum. We tell you about tanks and tank maintenance, burst disks, balanced and unbalanced regulators, venture valves, pilot valves, up-stream and down-stream valves, and types of depth gauges. After this, we are ready to understand what happens in your body when you go diving. In the physiology of diving, we will have a look at blood, hearts, lungs, ears, and all the things that can go wrong. More importantly, we will give you the knowledge you need to respond when things go wrong, and even more importantly, how to avoid things going wrong. That does not mean you won't need an Emergency First Responder course. You do, because you need skills and practice. But you will know all you need to know. Finally, we can bring it together and talk about decompression theory, how tables and dive computers work. You will know how compartments, half times, M-values are used to make models for your tables or computers to keep you safe. We did even more. We made an on-line course with videos and many more exercises to help you study. This is also the place where people all over the world taking this course help each other with questions and answers.
