Participants will learn general diving rules for all diving facilities. Additionally, they will learn how to land in the water with the proper body position. Instructors will demonstrate and train participants how to safely jump into air bubbles, which are used by divers to learn new dives.

Participants may be allowed by instructors to jump from the 10M platform if they are ready and willing.
