Continuing Education/Advanced Open Water Diver
The Advanced Open Water Diver is not a course in advanced diving, as you might believe. Rather, it is a course designed to help you advance as a diver, and is one which most divers choose to enroll in shortly after their entry-level course. If you have had a break from diving for a while, this course can be an excellent opportunity to get back on track again.
In the course of a weekend you will do five dives during which you get to experience different types of recreational scuba diving together with an instructor. This sampling of different scuba disciplines makes it easier for you to choose which way to take in your future career as a diver. Together with an Oxygène instructor you will improve your buoyancy control and gain more experience in safe and relaxed circumstances.
PADI’s Rescue Diver couse is designed for those of you who wish to develop your rescue skills while at the same time learning to take control of an accident site.
Among other things, you will learn to both prevent and respond to a dive accident, how a person reacts in an emergency situation and special rescue techniques while diving. As well, you learn to detect, prevent and handle stress within yourself and others, an important skill in todays society.
