This course seeks to provide tools in the design of experiments and protocols for underwater sampling, improving buoyancy and underwater navigation techniques.
This includes the correct planning and execution of diving plans up to 25 meters deep, as well as an introduction to the collection and management of ecological data collected following specific scientific diving protocols.
Likewise, advanced diving, rescue diving, and first aid (CPR) and oxygen administration in diving accidents skills are taught.
