RSTC Approves Supervised Diver Standard

Effective August 2010 RSTC approved the Supervised Diver standard.

This standard covers the requirements to conduct dives for divers with a limited diver rating.

These divers must dive under the supervision of a certified dive professional to a limited depth. The Supervised Diver standard is a subset of the Open Water Diver standard. All the information and skills required for certification as a Supervised Diver are part of the Open Water Diver standard. Agencies that offer this level of certification may have procedures a diver completes to upgrade to an Open Water Diver rating.

WRSTC Website Revised

The WRSTC website has been revised to provide clearer contact information for both WRSTC and the RSTC groups located around the world

The contact information for the WRSTC lists an email address as well as a mailing address. A separate email address for RSTC US has been developed, and is located on the contact page for the RSTC groups worldwide.

The website was update in September 2010.
