    diving

Advanced Open Water:
Exploration, Excitement, Experiences.  That’s
what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don’t have to
be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so
you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The
course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different
Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience
under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop
capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.


You’ll plan your learning path with your
instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two
required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three,
for a total of five dives. 


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 using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.


Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and dive
knife
 or dive tool.
You’ll also use specialized gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose.
For example, you’d obviously use a 
dry suit for
the Dry Suit Adventure Dive or a 
sidemount configuration during the Sidemount
Adventure Dive. Your Solano Divers  Instructor will explain the equipment
that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as 
dive
light
 for night diving
or lift bag for search and recovery diving.




Experience and/or Prerequisites
To enroll in a PADI Advanced
Open Water Diver course (or Junior Advanced Open Water Diver course), you must
be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in
good physical health. Open Water Diver course completion is required.

Rescue Diver:


The PADI Rescue Diver

Class Description


Describe
as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course. Why? Because you learn to
prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your
skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the
course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills
until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious,
but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.


The
PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and
major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue
exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue
scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:


  • Self-rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers
Experience and/or Prerequisites
PADI (Junior) Adventure
Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater
Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to
have 
Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid)
training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the
