If you have not previously dived with us we will ask you to join Diveskool for a couple of dives while we assess your ability. We will not take any course fees from you unless we are sure you have the skills and confidence to complete the course. If it is deemed you need more experience then you can join us for regular dives during which we will help you gain the experience and confidence you need.
The pre-requisite for the PADI Adventure Diver course is the PADI Open Water/Junior Open Water certification or equivalent from another Diving Organisation. You must be fit to dive and complete a Medical questionnaire.
Once you have enrolled for the course you will receive the PADI Adventures in Diving Handbook and your instructor will discuss and agree which Adventure dives are right for you; you need to complete three Adventure Dives to become an Adventure Diver. Your instructor will ask you to study the relevant chapters in the Adventures in Diving handbook and complete the knowledge review before taking part in any dive. He will also go over each review with you to ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of what is required for each dive.
Before the dive your instructor will give you a briefing on the required standard and procedure to complete the exercise, demonstrate any hand
signals that may be used and answer any questions. You will then complete your pre-dive checks and enter the water. On successful completion of the three exercises you will be awarded the PADI Adventure Diver certification.
On completion of this course you will have better knowledge and understanding of the skills you practised, making you a better diver. If you wish you may choose to turn your adventure dives into Specialities by taking the full speciality certification. Your adventure dive will count as one dive of the Speciality course so if you choose to upgrade Diveskool will offer a reduced rate.
