Some of the best recreational diving takes place in water deeper than 60 feet (18 meters). Such dives include wrecks and walls. The Deep Diver course builds on the skills you acquire as part of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course to enable you to make these dives safely and more effectively.

  • The purpose, problems, hazards, planning, preparation, equipment (additions and modifications), air supplies, personnel, techniques, gas management, emergency procedures (including location and transportation to a hyperbaric chamber) and depth limits for recreational diving
  • Decompression-related topics include nitrogen narcosis and decompression sickness (definition, cause, symptoms, signs, first aid and prevention) history of decompression, concepts, use of dive computers, definition of terms, problems, principles and techniques
  • Complete coverage of Repetitive Dive Tables, work sheets, problem solutions, exceptions and dive planning
  • Altitude diving, flying after diving and hyperbaric chamber access and operation as well as other short- and long-term deep diving hazards.
