Cylinder Visual Inspection Course

About This Course

In accordance with IMCA D 018 Revision 1, the Initial, Periodic Examination, Testing and Certification of Diving Plant and Equipment, detail sheet 10.1, requires bailout bottles to have a thorough internal and external visual examination every 6 months by a competent person.

Recent industry reports and safety flashes suggest that this has on several occasions not been carried out properly or accordingly to the correct standard. Indeed, it is very unlikely that even though the inspection has been carried out by a person deemed competent according to the categorisation in IMCA D 018, that such a person has not received the necessary training to understand the complexities of visual inspection. In brief, if the competent person does not know what he is looking for, how can he examine a cylinder and state it is fit for service?
