About This Course

Kirby Morgan Helmet & Bandmask User Operator

KMDSI Helmets and BandMask 2 Days Course

This course was developed to teach trained commercial diving personnel standardised inspection, set-up, and operation procedures for the KMDSI Helmets and BandMasks. This course is primarily intended to teach commercial divers and diving personnel standardized procedures for the use of KMDSI Helmets and Masks. "It is NOT a Repair/Technician course".

The operator / user course instructs commercial divers, tenders, and supervisors how to perform routine daily pre-dive / post-dive procedures as well as corrective adjustments and to identify equipment deficiencies, which could hamper helmet or BandMask performance and/or pose a potential hazard. The course teaches the KMDSI monthly, and daily helmet and BandMask pre/post dive maintenance, set-up, adjustment, and inspection procedures for Kirby Morgan Helmets, BandMasks and other specific associated equipment including first stage regulators, whips and gauges. Upon completion, each student will receive a two-year certification.

The course does not qualify or certify the individual to perform repairs, overhauls, or annual face port insert testing. Upon successful completion of the course and assigned tests, each student will receive a two year certification from Dive Lab (Kirby Morgan) USA initially and three years upon re-certification.
