Whether you’ve just recently gotten certified as an open-water scuba diver or you’ve been exploring the depths of the ocean for years, you can always benefit from additional dive training. There are many programs and courses available to divers of all levels, each with unique benefits.
Here are some reasons why you should consider taking advanced diver training:
1. Improved Safety
First and foremost, advanced training will make you a better and safer diver. Through the SDI Advanced Scuba Diver Development Program, for example, you can develop an improved understanding of dive theory and the skills needed to safely navigate underwater environments. You’ll also learn more about the gear to use and the proper use of dive computers, as well as the effects of nitrogen narcosis and other potential dive-related hazards.
2. Learn Skills For More Complex Dives
Deep diver training is another type of advanced diver training you should consider. It will teach you the techniques for safely exploring deeper depths and the skills and knowledge required for extended bottom times. This type of training will also give you a better understanding of the effects of nitrogen narcosis and the proper use of dive computers. Additionally, you’ll be able to plan and execute dives with greater safety and confidence, as well as develop an understanding of the importance of the dive buddy system and the principles of gas management.
Night dive training, wreck dive training, advanced navigation skills, and advanced buoyancy training are also available.
3. Improve Specific Skills
In addition to comprehensive advanced diver courses, you can also find courses and training opportunities that allow you to improve specific skills. For example, you can attend demonstrations to learn more about underwater photography to capture photos of your dives. You could also schedule private sessions to work on diving techniques that you’d like to improve. There are many possibilities.
