The course, run by IKO and VDWS certified instructors , consists of theory in which multimedia, navigation simulation and videos help to demonstrate exercises for practice in the water. In the practical part, the communication between instructor and student will be simplified by professional radio helmets.
In collaboration with Naish and Prolimit, KTS40 supplies all the equipment free of charge for the whole duration of the course.
During the months when the water is colder, the school also provides drysuits, footwear and neoprene gloves.
