As perhaps an indication of how powerful the average dive computer has become, there are 41 lessons available in total.

Subjects covered range from programming your Puck or Icon HD pre-dive, navigating with the compass, decompression settings and gas switching.

The class costs $11.99, so if you own a Mares Puck or Icon HD and the features have left you a bit baffled, this looks like a cheap way of getting more out of it.
