Working divers, like public safety divers, use full facepieces because they protect the eyes and nose from pollutants in the water, provide comfort in cold water and allow for communication. If you are interested in public safety, science diving, or venturing into extremely cold water, then learning to dive with a full face is for you. Since the full face allows you to breathe through the nose, they are also useful for those who have difficulty using standard masks. Diving with a full face mask offers a different experience and this could be the main reason to try it.
To enroll in a Full Face Mask Diver course, you must be a PADI Open Water Diver and be at least 12 years old.
There are different types of full face masks, and you begin to learn what the various features and components of the mask are. Then, learn the techniques to prepare and dive with the full face, as well as how to properly maintain it. During a confined water dive, you get used to using your mask and practice skills to prepare for open water diving. During two open water dives, you will demonstrate your ability to:
Prepare and properly check your diving mask.
Adjust it and empty it under water.
Responding to emergency situations due to exhaustion of gas.
