The PADI Advanced Course is designed to provide the novice diver with additional training and offer insight into different types of diving (deep dive, night diving etc.). Open Water divers and Junior Open Water divers may take the Advanced Course directly after completion of the Open Water Course.

The course consists of a theory session followed by five dives which focus on a particular skill. The dives include a Deep Dive, a Navigation Dive, and three other 'Specialty' dives - which are chosen by student and instructor (e.g. night diving, search and recovery, wreck diving, boat diving, etc.). The course runs for one full day, and one half day. Prior to each dive, students will be required to read the appropriate chapter and complete the knowledge review.

Junior Open Water divers complete the same course work as Open Water divers, but the deep dive will be limited to a maximum depth of 70 feet. Junior Advanced Open Water divers who complete the course will receive a certification card. However, all Junior Advanced Open Water divers must still dive with an adult. When the diver reaches 15 years of age, he or she may apply for a standard Advanced Open Water certification card. The course includes equipment, boat dives, and certification materials. The Open Water certification card must be presented upon enrollment.

THE FINE PRINT: FREE transfers are available.
