For certified divers, the next step is earning your PADI Adventure Diver certification or PADI Advanced Diver certification. These training dives focus on developing your skills allowing you to explore specific aspects of diving. The Adventure Diver course is a combination of any 3 training dives from the Advanced Diver course, and may be completed in 1 day. The Advanced Diver course is made up of 5 dives and requires a minimum of 2 days to complete. For this course, both the Deep and Navigation dives are compulsory. The 3 remaining dives are electives, such as Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Naturalist, or Underwater Photography. The Advanced Diver course is a pre-requisite for the PADI Rescue Diver course. The training dives may also be applied toward PADI Specialty Diver ratings.
