Advanced Courses Overview

We encourage you to enroll on the PADI Adventures in Diving Course as soon as possible after gaining your PADI Open Water License. This highly recommended follow on course from entry level certification builds on your existing scuba skills and introduces a further five PADI specialty dives which will increase your diving capabilities to 30 metres. In PADI’s Adventures in Diving Course you will be exposed to navigation and deep diving skills including a variety of other specialized diving areas to whet your appetite for further PADI specialty training.

Specialty Diver Courses

We all dive for different reasons. Some for the peace and quiet of shallow clear waters, others for the marine wildlife safari and others for the rush of deep wreck dives. For this reason PADI has designed courses to cater for everyone’s scuba diving desires. Dive down to 40 metres, use Enriched Air Nitrox, penetrate fascinating shipwrecks, become an underwater photographer, dive at night, the list goes on. Choose your niche and go beyond with PADI Specialty Courses.

Rescue Diver Courses

Challenging and rewarding best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur. The Rescue Course is a comprehensive look at what causes the majority of diving accidents with a practical look at preventing, reducing and responding to common problems. A physically challenging course that helps you assist other divers and also allows you to identify and address your own diving challenges. Round off your recreational competency with the PADI Rescue Diver Course.

Emergency First Response (EFR) is an essential course that teaches First Aid and CPR techniques for assisting casualties of diving and non diving accidents. The Basic Life Support (BLS) course results in EFR certification and is recognized the world over as a prerequisite for all professional level diving courses and other industry minimums. PADI Oxygen Provider is a thorough introduction to the human cardiovascular system, its need for oxygen and how to assist with decompression injuries. This course is an excellent supplement to Emergency First Response and PADI rescue diver courses.
