If I Take The KMDSI Technician Course Can I Work On Other Peoples Equipment
NO! Non-dealer technician can work on their own equipment, the companies, and other
divers equipment within the company as per company policy. Free-lancing as technician for profit
is not allowed!. Only KMDSI Dealer Technicians are authorized by KMDSI to
perform repairs for profit.
KMDSI Dealers are bound legally by dealer agreement to perform work on KMDSI products strictly IAW
the requirements set forth by KMDSI. Dealers performing repairs and maintenance must only use genuine
Kirby Morgan parts and must perform all work IAW dealer technician requirements. Non dealer
technicians are not under the control or bound legally with a contract or agreement with KMDSI.
KMDSI cannot mandate what non dealers do. Non dealer technicians must limit repairs to their own
equipment, company owned equipment, and equipment belonging to company/affiliate companies and
employees as dictated by company policy. Non-dealer technicians that perform repairs for profit do
without the permission or support of KMDSI and Dive Lab and could pose a serious safety threat to
the diving industry if the pose as a certified dealer repair center. Customer beware!
insure the technicians performing the service are trained and authorized. All the KMDSI dealers are
listed on the KMDSI web page as well as what their qualifications are, and what equipment they are
trained and authorized to service.
