Y'all should video these gas management seminars (Bob, Peter, BDub) and make them available in a resource guide somewhere :)

It's good to see folks asking for these seminars, and recognizing the importance of the topic ... which, to my concern, is the most important information not provided by any major agency.

The Portland area diving community is great. I've done a couple of these at Seven Seas Scuba that were very well attended ...

I was going to be in Portland on the 5th, but I am in Kentucky on the 12th. I would have liked to have made this.

FREE Portland Metro Area Gas Management Seminar

Postby selkie » Wed May 29, 2013 12:36 pm

Oregon Scuba Club is hosting a FREE Gas Management Seminar

Peter Rothschild PADI MSDT/Tec Instructor has very graciously agreed to present a seminar on Gas Management for those of us living in the Portland Metro Area.

This is how Peter describes his class

When you first learn to dive in the Open Water Class, every student is told to "Plan your dive and Dive your plan." While time is spent making sure that every diver understands the concept of "No Decompression Limits" and how "NDLs" limit the amount of time you can safely spend underwater, often little is taught about planning for how much air you actually need for the dive. This is the topic of Air Supply Management which is often referred to as Gas Management.

In order to “Plan Your Dive” with regards to your air consumption, you need to know several things:

1. How much air you breathe when you dive;
2. How deep you will be diving;
3. How much air you start with; and
4. How long you plan to stay down.

When: 7pm Wednesday 12 June 2013

Where: Round Table Pizza
10070 Southwest Barbur Boulevard
Portland, OR 97219
(503) 245-2211
Call ahead and order your food for faster service!
