About The Series: “Jumpstart the Divemaster in You” Booklets

This series of 7 booklets (or 2 value priced boxed sets) is aimed at the new diver or the diver that has been away from the sport for an extended period of time and needs a refresher. Each booklet is full of practical and easy to follow tips that are designed to improve specific dive skills, increase the divers confidence and allow the diver to get the most out of his/her diving.

Each booklet is written in plain English and is not simply a rehash of what is taught in scuba certification class. Instead, these booklets are the 100% practical real life side of diving. The author relates many real life stories throughout all the booklets and tells what she has observed and learned during her diving career. Her conversational way of writing makes it easy to learn from her experiences - and her mistakes. It's like having a down-to-earth friend give pointers, answer questions and offer advice that you can easily relate to - because the author has been in the same position.
