    Do you have more details about this course please?

    Agreed. A course in Cardiff was a good use of time.

    I did a factory course with Apeks, got the certificate and used to be able to buy the service kits direct. Now they won't sell to anyone that isn't affiliated with a shop.
    That said, I've been servicing my own regs every year for the best part of 20 years and very rarely change anything, just clean and re-use.

    Alternative to a dedicated course are these good books:
    1. http://www.airspeedpress.com/newregbook.html
    2. https://www.scubatools.com/c-23-regu...avvy-book.aspx
    I doubt, anyone needs anything else to be able to service their own regulators and of course, only one of them is more than enough.

    I have the Airspeed book and it is very good. Even if you don't service stuff it is worth reading just for the understanding of how the thing functions and what are the issues in terms of maintenance and cleaning and so on. A physical hands-on course would be a great compliment to either book and a chance to expand your understanding, but I agree they (well the one I own) give all the information you need.

    Thanks, I have just ordered the book now. Looking forward to reading it. I did a course with Bristol Channel divers a few yrs back, so hopefully this book will help refresh my memory. Including postage 56.53
