LAST CHANCE for Summer 2022 Continuing Education Opportunities

PADI Advanced Open Water Certification

This course is a great way for a newer diver to quickly gain practical experience in a variety of different types of diving. While an active diver may gain experience just by diving, the advanced course will get them there much quicker, and with a higher degree of insight because of the conveyance of their instructor's real world experience. To accomplish its goal, the course enables students to participate in various underwater tasks that broaden both their awareness of the aquatic realm and their capabilities as divers. The course is designed to be simple and short, and to stress diving participation and skill development, more than theory. 

MSD 2022 Advanced Open Water Diver Courses:  

  • September 23rd - 25th

**This class is a prerequisite to the PADI Rescue Diver Course.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course broadens a diver's awareness and improves their skills and confidence. It is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to prevent, and if necessary, manage dive emergencies. Most certified PADI Rescue Divers look back on their rescue training as one of the most challenging - sometimes demanding - and therefore most rewarding courses they've taken. The subject is serious but the training is fun.

  • October
  • *EFR: Sept. 30th
  • Rescue: 1st - 2nd

*Emergency First Response (EFR) course combines first aid and CPR. This certification (or equivalent) is needed for the PADI Rescue Diver Certification.
