The Advanced Diver Course consists of the following elements:
- four classroom lessons
- theory assessment
- two dry practical lessons
- two open water lessons
- twenty dives (which may include the open water lessons), in a range of conditions, since qualifying as a Dive Leader
Dive Leader training supplemented ‘formal’ lessons with a more extensive broadening of divers experience. This is further extended in the Advanced Diver course, which has relatively few ‘formal’ practical lessons and is much more heavily based on a further structured broadening of experience.
