    Just saw an old thread on the PADI five point descent. Someone used the acronym I had been taught: SORTD for:

    Signal
    Orient
    Regulator
    Timer
    Descend

    It got me wondering. If you are being taught in a language other than English, do they use some sort of acronym to help you remember things like the five point descent?
