#1 DIVE TRAINING BOOKS
Level 4, Level 5, Federal and State Monitorates
Pleasure Diving Workbook covers the entire training program of the French Diving School (FFESSM, FSGT, ANMP, SNMP, UCPA) and the World Confederation of Underwater Activities (CMAS).
An ideal book for you to revise, practice for exams and self-assess.
On the way to acquiring skills, the exam is often a must, such as level 4 or monitoring. All candidates are therefore looking for a way to take stock of their knowledge in order to measure their shortcomings and fill them.
If any pedagogue is aware that training cannot be reduced to preparing for an exam, he is also convinced that specific preparation becomes a necessity as the fateful date approaches. We then enter a period called "cramming" where all energies are gathered towards a single goal: to pass the exam!
This is how it appeared useful, in addition to Plongée Plaisir level 4 (focused on the knowledge to be acquired as a dive guide, dive director or instructor) and Plongée Plaisir Monitorats (focused on pedagogy), to offer a specific preparation book for the exams containing a total of more than 800 exercises and solutions.
In this context, Plongée Plaisir Workbook presents:
- 200 exercises on risk prevention and associated notions of anatomy and physiology, making sure to be at the forefront of the subject, particularly for the most important risks such as desaturation accidents for which prevention advice has evolved considerably over these ten last years. The same is true for pulmonary overpressure or newly identified risks such as immersion pulmonary oedema.
- 100 exercises on desaturation procedures with a large focus on dive computers, including the most recent models used by most divers today.
- 200 regulatory questions that cover the entire curriculum.
- 100 questions on team management as well as knowledge and protection of the environment.
- 200 questions on physics applied to diving, seamanship and equipment.
