Suggestions for avoiding deaths or accidents during basic scuba diving courses are presented. Beginners should see to it that their instructors are properly certified and insured. They can also inquire about the current status of their teachers through diving associations. The dive sites should be chosen based on divers' skills and experience. There must be means of communications with other people, whether through two-way radios or cellular telephones. Dive operators or instructors must have an emergency plan and the necessary equipment needed to deal with any emergency.
