Finding and recovering lost objects is an advanced skill and requires careful thought and dive planning. Without proper preparation, a search could take considerably longer then it should, or a recovery operation may fail. This program focuses on the recovery of small items (i.e. ring, watch, wallet, etc.) and medium sized objects (i.e. underwater cameras, boat motors, etc.) in an open water environment. Recovering items in an overhead environment such as ice, cavern, or wreck requires further training and very specialized techniques which are not covered in this program. Taking SSI's Search and Recovery Course provides in-depth information on the necessary equipment, skills, knowledge and experience required to execute a recreational search and recovery operation for small to medium sized objects in an open water environment.
