Am I Ready for the Next Level?

A Good Diver Is Always Learning
When it comes to the Adventure Diver Course leading to the Advanced Open Water certification course, "Advanced" is often a misnomer. Most courses are designed to bring Open Water certified divers to a higher level of proficiency where they can dive with more confidence and safety, and begin to enjoy diving in more challenging conditions. If one or more of the following describe you or how you feel about diving, then contact the professionals at your local dive center and ask about their Advanced Open Water training program.
One of the Reasons I'm O/W-certified but haven't been diving for a few months, and want to improve my skills
The Second of the Reasons I could use some additional training to more precisely control my buoyancy.
The Third of the Reasons I'm a certified diver, but sometimes I'm concerned that the dives may be more than I can safely handle.
The Fourth of the Reasons I would like to get a taste of some of the more popular specialties, such as deep diving, underwater navigation, or night and U/W photo diving.
The Fifth of the Reasons I would like to get additional training to improve my skills, but I'm not sure which direction to take.
The Sixth the Reasons I don't always feel like I'm really on top of my diving, and would like to be better prepared for the challenges of the deep.
The Seventh of the Reasons All my diving has been in warm water with good visibility, and now I am considering some cold water dives, or dives in areas that might be more challenging.
The Eighth of the Reasons I'm comfortable in clear well-lit waters, but I'm nervous about low visibility, and get anxious at the thought of diving in darkness.
The Nineth of the Reasons My basic diving skills are good, but I have problems using a compass underwater and sometimes have difficulty navigating back to the boat or a specific point /on shore.
Although the Advanced Open Water course will improve many skills and add new once, it's still important to master basic diving skills before enrolling in the advanced Open Water course. A quick visit to the pool with your dive store will refresh such things as gear assembly, entries and exits, basic buoyancy control, mask clearing and resolving underwater problems. If you haven't been diving for a long time, or if you haven't mastered the basics, consider taking a refresher course before tackling the advanced program.
