Team Members Advance Skills at Annual Training

During 24-28 April 2017, the DPS Dive Team conducted high intensity training at Lake Powell.  The primary goal of the week was to advance as many Team Members as possible to the level of “DPS Diver” which is a credential that far exceeds the level of “Master Diver” in the diving industry.  Achievements included passing off four Divers to function at a depth of 150′, engaging in multiple “Lift Bag” recovery operations, and introducing a new gear configuration commonly known as “Side Mount.”  Though the Dive Team Members were weary after the exhausting week of training, spirits were high as the Team celebrated the fact that the Team has never before in its history had 70% of its Members rated as fully-operational “DPS Divers.”
