Adaptive Diving Partner
This is a diving specialty and is designed to further your knowledge of supervising, assisting and diving with divers who have disabilities. During this course we will cover the skills, knowledge, planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and risks of assisting a physically impaired diver on and below the surface. This specialty course includes a classroom session and 1 confined water session with an open water training session.
Upon completing the PADI Adaptive Diving training, you will be able to:
- Demonstrate practical knowledge and planning procedures that make the physically impaired divers’ experience safe and fun.
- Assist the physically impaired diver plan and implement their dive plan to safely dive within depths and conditions as good as or better than those which the diver has been trained.
- Identify the hazards of assisting physically impaired divers and demonstrate the techniques and procedures required to minimize those hazards.
This specialty is ideal for Divemasters and Instructors who will be working in areas which are popular with divers who have disabilities, or wish to provide support to scuba diving activities for divers with disabilities, particularly veterans. This training is also valuable for all Divemasters and Instructors as it will expand your own creative thinking in working with all certified divers and students within safe recreational diving limits.
