What is Advanced Open Water Diver Course?
PADI Advanced Diver course is a step further than Open Water Diver. It’s not designed to make the diver an expert – rather, to give an initial introduction of what more specialized diving activities have to offer. The PADI Advanced program is designed to be short and simple, with a focus on practical application rather than theory and knowledge development. This level of diver certification is a prerequisite to several PADI Specialties and to Rescue Diver level.
The complete course consists of:
Five open water training dives, usually done over a weekend in Pulau Seribu (Thousand Islands). Two “core” dives: Underwater Navigation and Deep Diving and three elective dives to be agreed upon with your PADI Instructor. Popular choices are: Drift Diving, Wreck Diving, Underwater Naturalist, and Buoyancy Control.
Course Fee: IDR. 3,050,000,-
