PADI Self-Reliant Diver Specialty Course Details:

This PADI Specialty course consists of two main phases:

1. Knowledge development sessions to discuss self-reliant techniques and redundant equipment use.

2. One shore and two boat training dives to practice techniques learned to safely dive independently or to be a better buddy.

Knowledge Development:

Learning how to compensate for situations you would normally handle with a buddy is the focus of the Self-Reliant Diver course. This includes proper dive planning using air consumption rate calculations, life support system redundancy, and independent management of dive emergencies.

Open Water Training Sessions:

During three scuba dives, you’ll learn how to:

  • Diving with redundant systems in place and how to properly rig and carry redundant air systems.
  • Calculate an accurate gas consumption rate.
  • Essential gas management skills to safely manage your bottom times.
  • Increased your skills with proper DSMB (Delayed Surface Marker Buoy) rigging and deployment from any depth.
  • Refine your navigational skills.
