To enroll on the PADI Self Reliant Diver course you will need to be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, at least 18 years old and have 100 logged dives. A successful pass of a skills assessment with your Instructor is needed before starting this course.
Who this course is for
Self-reliant does not mean solo, it means diving as part of a team, but being equipped with the knowledge, skills and equipment needed to finish the dive alone if the unexpected occurs. This is an excellent course for anyone who dives with unfamiliar team members, dives professionally supervising uncertified divers, or has an interest in technical diving.
What you can expect
The program is intended to be challenging and centers on risk recognition and mitigation, and response to equipment failures, or incidents that may leave a diver alone and having to fend for themselves.
