Continuing Education: Advanced Course

Following is information on our Adventure Dive/Advanced Open Water Programs at Seattle Scuba Schools. The Seattle Advanced schedule is available here.
Advanced Open Water Diver Course

The next step for Open Water divers!

The Advanced Open Water Diver Course is designed to give you practical experience in a number of specialty diving areas. Unlike the Open Water Course, the Adventures in Diving program involves little written testing. You will begin by reading the requisite academic materials at home on your own time.  The material will then be reviewed with your instructor prior to your water training sessions. The objective of the programs is to give you as much in water time as possible in which to perfect your diving skills. 

Dive Requirements;

The Advanced Class consists of five dives done over two days.  Each Dive is also the first dive of the corresponding specialty AND will count towards the required dives for both the Advanced Open Water, and Specialty certifications.

Advanced Open Water: Requires a minimum of five Dives which MUST include the Deep &  Underwater Navigation dives The 3 other dives can be whichever you choose to participate in. 

The focus of the other 3 dives will depend on the local options, but may include a Night Dive, a Peak Performance Buoyancy Dive, a Search and Recovery Dive, a Drift Dive, a Fish Identification or Underwater Naturalist Dive.
