PADI ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE
thinking like a diver
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course used to be a task-oriented which focuses on developing additional skills for newly certified divers from the basic entry dive course. In 2017, that old style of teaching has been overhauled and great improvements to the training syllabus were introduced. On top of the five required dives, a scuba diver undergoing the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course will be taught in greater detail on planning dives with a secondary objective, developing and applying situation awareness, management of task loading and displaying good diving habits.
