ADVANCE OPEN WATER COURSE IN PONDICHERRY
Those who would like to expand their scuba-diving knowledge and increase their depth limits, though should pursue the Advanced Open Water course.
After your Open Water Certification, you have the opportunity to explore dive spots around the world, travelling with dive buddies to new adventures. There is also more you can do, by improving your scuba skills, doing another dive course that will help build your confidence. Some people end their training there, happy to enjoy diving within the open-water limits. And, with recent revisions, the course now offers more options than ever, aiming to turn you from an enthusiastic novice to someone who “thinks like a diver.”
Advanced Open Water Diver course not about being “advanced”, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so once comfortable after your Open Water Certification, you can dive right in to your Advanced Open Water course. The course has a long list of scuba specialty dives to try which helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills. Boat diving, drift diving, wreck diving, side mount diving and over a dozen of other specialty dives to choose from. There is no classroom sessions for these dives and you try out these under the supervision of your Instructor.
There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives to complete the Advanced Open Water Course. 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. You can be an Adventure Diver till you complete the two required dives, and each of your adventure dive credits towards the required dives of the corresponding Specialty Diver course.
