PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course - More Info
What does it cover?
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course manual includes knowledge development for the two required topics; the Deep and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dives, along with five of the most popular elective dives.
As with the PADI Open Water Diver course, the entire PADI Adventures in Diving manual (complete with all Adventure Dive possibilities).
Please note that if you wish to complete the PADI Enriched Air Diver (nitrox) or Digital Underwater Photographer Adventure Dives then the relationship to the Adventures in Diving program differs slightly. You will need to complete the knowledge development for those two programs separately, by purchasing the student manuals from your local PADI Dive Center. Experience real adventure and be one step closer to Master Scuba Diver - the ultimate non-professional certification in recreational diving.
What are the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course prerequisites?
You need to be at least 12 years old, a certified entry-level diver and fit for diving to be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
How does it work?
After enrolling, PADI's Advanced manual presents you with interactive presentations that include graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
What else is required to complete the course?
Prior to certification as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you must successfully complete at least five Adventure Dives. Two of these are mandatory; the Deep Adventure Dive and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive. The other three dives that you complete can be chosen from a wide range of Adventure Dives and the decision as to which dives you complete will be based on what is available at your dive location and what your PADI Instructor is able to offer.
What does it cost?
The fee covers the knowledge development training as well as unlimited access to the entire PADI Adventures in Diving manual. Aqua Marine Scuba can help you with any equipment needs for the course as well. Contact the dive center to determine total course costs.
