That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
Together we will plan your learning path by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives. During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time. The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – drift and/or night diving, photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive. Have a look at the specialties to see which posibilities are available with Divi Diving. Some specialties cannot contribute to this course, eg. there is no dive in the specialty. It’s also possible to get your Advanced Open Water certification by completing 5 Specialty courses (with dives).
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.
Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and dive knife or dive tool. You’ll also use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. For example, you’d obviously use a dry suit for the Dry Suit Adventure Dive or a sidemount configuration during the Sidemount Adventure Dive. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as dive light for night diving or lift bag for search and recovery diving.
Learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver. It’s challenging, yet very rewarding. By adding the Emergency O2 Provider course, which replaces Rescue Diver Skill 9, you now have the extensive skills set geared to aid in helping divers in need of help. So by completing this course you will be certified from the getgo to give first aid to divers using Oxygen.
Do you want to make a difference on every dive but are not sure where to begin? Gain the knowledge and skills to activate your inner citizen scientist by taking the Dive Against Debris® Specialty. You’ll learn to complete Dive Against Debris surveys under the guidance of a PADI® Professional and help keep you your local dive sites healthier by removing trash. If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Dive Against Debris Specialty course.
De PADI Enriched Air Diver-cursus is de meest populaire specialty-duikcursus van PADI. Waarom? Omdat duiken met verrijkte lucht nitrox je langere nultijden biedt, vooral bij herhalingsduiken. Als langer onder water blijven en een minder lang oppervlakteinterval je als muziek in de oren klinkt, twijfel dan niet en word enriched air diver.
Als je PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver bent van minimaal 12 jaar oud dan mag je deelnemen aan de Enriched Air Diver Specialty-cursus. Overigens, in sommige regio’s ligt de minimumleeftijd hoger dan 12 jaar.
