PADI Advanced Open Water Course
Are you looking to explore the next step in Scuba Diving? Many of our Advanced Courses head out to the Poor Knights so why not jump on board!
If you want to increase your confidence, explore more of the underwater world and develop more of your scuba diving capabilities then this is the course for you!
Most people assume that the Advanced Open Water Course is for 'advanced' divers and that they need vast amounts of dive experience to take part. In essence this course is aimed at the not just the experienced diver but also at the new diver.
This course is designed to maximise your in-water learning (all theory is completed online) and it's a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of one of our experienced instructors, so that by the time you have finished the course you will be a better and safer diver.
You will be introduced to a range of different diving types under varying conditions so it's a great way to get a taste of the various Speciality courses that you can undertake to continue your diving education.
Dive HQ Westhaven also run an NZQA approved career pathway to this course in their Academy of Diving Programme. This is the National Certificate in Foundation. Summer School, Part-time and Full time course available. More information?
We also run NZQA Star programmes through schools and education facilities.
This couse involves 5 FUN dives with a knowledge review to be completed before each dive.
