PADI To Launch Updated Advanced Open Water Diver Certification

-

If you’ve gotten your PADI Open Water Diver certification and don’t want to stop there, the next step in your dive education may be a bit different come September.

PADI will be launching an updated Advanced Open Water Diver program next month with what the organization calls “significant” changes:

“Think of it as a shiny new car, but one that’s the same model as your old familiar vehicle.”

PADI had three goals driving the update: New content reflecting changes in dive techniques and equipment; modernized teaching tools including a digital app; and a new “Thinking Like a Diver” section that gives divers better ways of understanding their dives and mitigating risks.
