What is a Neptune System Training program?

Teaching people new skills and learning to act on a different way it’s always a challenge. In diving we are fully aware that proper training is essential to reach the required level of comfort and safety. Therefore communication of the essential informations is an important part of the whole process. With the OCEAN REEF Full Face mask and underwater communication systems we have extra tool to use beside hand signs communication.When we go diving with new dive equipment we need to spend some time in learning how to use these new tools and the Neptune Space Training program (NSTP) has been designed to teach how to use OCEAN REEF Fullface mask and underwater communication systems on a safe, enjoyable and efficient way.With the support of Course Directors, Instructor Trainers and instructors around the world the OCEAN REEF’s R&D department developed the NSTP program. The NSTP program is a friendly step-to-step learning process of “why” and “how” to use an OCEAN REEF full-face mask, kits accessories and the communication units or how to teach using these new tools.Forget the scuba diving rule “ do not breath through the nose”, cause what you will be practicing is to breath through mouth and nose while diving. Breathing naturally trough the nose creates lots of advantages; It will moister your inhalation air and it will stimulate belly breathing which allows you to use your full lung capacity, taking in more oxygen, making your air consumption more efficient.Having nothing to bite means a mouth completely free to speak. Speaking underwater and stay focused on hearing what other people tell you is completely new experience. We need to learn the proper technique of conscious breathing and speaking underwater.Topics that will be covered:


  • Familiarization with the OCEAN REEF IDM & U/W Communication systems
  • Proper adjustment of the Fullface mask and 3-D equalization system
  • Pre dive safety checks
  • Donning and doffing of an OCEAN REEF Fullface mask
  • Why an Ocean Reef Fullface mask does not leak water and the visor will never fog
  • Switch back to conventional backup system of octopus and spare mask
  • Clear a full flooded IDM under water
  • Install Underwater communication equipment
  • Learn the technique of speaking underwater using the wireless communication systems.
  • Underwater teaching, using U/W communication systems
  • Proper maintenance procedures.The program is designed to improve the dive instructors knowledge and familiarity of an important and and sometimes overlooked area of diving activity. OCEAN REEF can also provide educational material for certified instructors. In our NSTP download area for Instructors you can download manuals and supportive training material. Hardcopy’s of the teaching manuals are available trough the official OCEAN REEF Authorized Dealer or contact our training department directly. For any question, please send email to:
