Training Coordinator and lead instructor Ron Carter says, “Negative and no way! Too much of a learning curve to have students wearing drysuits during the beginner pool and ocean dives. It can be dangerous to overload beginners with too many tasks. Task loading is not fun or even fare to customers. It won’t be needed in Monterey for students anyways. The dives are short and students tend to be more focused on skills than they are on a minor shiver. Think about drysuits after the program when you are certified.”
