The 3-day course is held by IKO and VDWS certified instructors and is divided into six parts. The three theory lessons last about six hours and include multimedia, navigation simulators and videos that show the exercises to be later practised in water. During the second theory lesson videos filmed during the first practical are watched and analyzed. The first practical lesson is individual and takes place with the student and instructor together in water in order to optimize learning times and guarantee maximum safety. The second and the third individual practical lesson makes use of 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.
