Course Scientific Diving

The Scientific Diving Centre (SDC) at TU Freiberg (Saxony, Germany) trains divers to become scientific divers. For external students and scientists, SDC offers a block course consisting of theory, practice and excursion for this qualification.

The course is separated into lectures in the morning and practical pool training in the afternoon. Topics of the lectures can be adapted to the participants and will be e.g. oceanology, geoscience, hydrothermal systems, submarine volcanism, sampling (water, gas, sediments, rocks and biota), measuring equipment (e.g. temperature, pH, ORP, EC) or photo and video documentation. At the beginning and at the end of the course a two day dive camp with practical training in freshwater lakes takes place. Scientific under water work like e.g. transect line, documentation, lift bag, using measuring devices, sampling and dive planning will be trained. The dives will take place in 2 different fresh water lake.

Course fee:
1150 Euro Modul I: Including training, printouts, entrance fee public pool and dive spots, fee for guest student enrolling, accommodation during the 2 dive camps (4 nights in multi bedded rooms), air for diving, dive weights in pool and lakes.
