You will learn how disassemble the unit, (depending on the brand and model, might have different procedures) and reassemble the unit, how to charge it, maintenance of the unit, how to clean it, how to carry it and what to do if it gets flooded.

The program will teach how to operate in the water, showing you how to control in a safety manner for you and others, as also the conservation of the environment.
