Theory. Simulation. Learning. FUN!



Applying the Learning

The theory delivered reinforces the materials in the online micro-class, digging deeper, using student experiences to further develop the ideas and concepts which lead to high performance. Over the two-days, there are an additional 3.5 hrs of theory delivered as well as 5 hrs of simulation.

Over 5 hrs of simulation using a tool specifically designed by aviation psychologists to help develop high performance teams. Decision-making under stress and teamwork with co-operation and collaboration are developed. However, as in real life, there are competing goals which have to be balanced.

While the some learning happens during the intense-simulation exercises, the real learning happens in the debrief where teams have to focus on specifics for development using a validated framework. There is no hiding and psychological safety is created to ensure critical learning is achieved including identifying goals. 

Why should I learn about this?

These courses do not focus on the technical aspects of diving but rather decision making, situational awareness, communications and cooperation skills, and crucially, their interdependence.

Research indicates that diving incidents are rarely down to undetected technical issues rather they are impacted by the variability of human performance. i.e. we make mistakes, errors and break the rules!

Divers spend plenty of money on the 'shiny' stuff but how often do you consider improving the grey matter between your ears? That grey matter has far more impact on your safety than the latest gadget...

What do the classes look like?
