Question
Posted : August 20, 2007
Hi,I'm planning on doing a Commercial Diver-Scuba course early next year.I don't have any previous diving experience,so I was hoping to find out what training manuals are used on the course and are they available to buy before doing the course so I can get a head start on the theory.
Some of the manuals I've found are.

Scuba Diving
Scuba Diver's Sign Language Manual
Dry Suit Diving - A Guide to Diving Dry 4th Ed.
Scientific and archaeological diving projects:Reg
Media diving projects: Regulations

Thanks
Steve

I hope you have done some research because there is a very limited market for SCUBA diving in the commercial industries. The vast majority of commercial diving is done using Surface Supplied Equipment. As far as books are concerned there is none which cover the HSE syllabus other than course manuals. If I were you I would join a local club or do an open water course before shelling out for the course.
