This course can be taken after completing the Basic Open Water Course. You do not have to be an "advanced diver" to take this course, it is designed to advance your skills. Whether you have five dives, or one hundred, this course will meet you where your skills are, and advance your diving from there, as well as broaden your awareness of the environment you're diving in.
This class consists of five open water dives, including a Peak Performance Buoyancy dive, Navigation dive, Night dive, Deep dive, and one additional, decided on by the instructor, dive site, and students in the course.
