Mares Diving Announces New Lab Concept for Technical Training


New “Mares Lab” training program takes technicians deeper into regulator dynamics and technology.

Mares Lab consists of several different courses that increasingly immerse technicians in Mares technology, culminating in the Master Lab program. Master Lab graduates will have completed extensive hands-on training on all Mares regulators and inflators including a special workshop on troubleshooting. The format is content rich and more in-depth than any previous Mares tech tour.

Scott Cook, Mares Lab Program Manager, will be the lead trainer for the programs. As well as his experience as Mares Warranty Technician in Baltimore, Scott has received extensive training at Mares world headquarters in Rapallo, Italy. Formerly a Navy Diver, Scott maintains a passion for diving that he shares during the seminars.

Lab stops in 2007 include; Quebec City, Montreal, Costa Mesa, Atlanta, Panama City, Dallas, Austin, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Raleigh-Durham, San Juan, Puerto Rico & the Orlando DEMA show.
