Have you ever been standing at the dive site asking yourself how to correctly set your brand new computer? A lot of divers have been in this situation and would have done anything to avoid it. This is exactly why Computer Diving is such an important course. It is your chance to learn and understand dive computers. Learning how to plan your dive with a table is extremely important. It is how you develop an understanding of the decompression theory. But in real life, divers do not dive a table profile. The modern diver does multi-level diving which means that the dive incorporates different depth levels. These kind of dives can only be planned with a special type of table or a dive computer. Dive computers make diving safer and easier if you know how to set and use it correctly.
