What does it cover?
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course includes knowledge development for the two required dives of Deep and Underwater Navigation. Then choose three elective dives that are appropriate for our diving area.
What are the prerequisites?
You need to be a certified entry-level diver and fit for diving and be at least 12 years old.
How does it work?
Most divers choose the "Flex" option which allows them to complete the knowledge reviews for the five sections of the manual that corresponds to the dives that they will be completing.
What is required to complete the course?
Complete the five Adventure Dives based on what is available at your dive location and what your PADI Instructor is able to offer.
What diving equipment will I need?
In addition to your scuba gear, you will need a dive knife/tool, surface signaling device, a compass and a dive computer or timing device and RPD table. For a night dive, you will need an underwater light. A backup light and marker/chemical light is also recommended. Central Oregon Diving will give you a 50% discount off of gear rental.
What is provided by the shop?
Free tanks and air are provided. When an Instructor is going out to do adventure dives, he/she will call the "flex" students and see if they are available to go diving. Once all the five dives have been completed, your Advanced Open Water Diver certification will be issued.
