Description

What will you learn?

Learning to adjust your dive plan for the reduced surface pressure at altitude is an important part of the course.

You’ll complete two scuba dives and learn:

  • Altitude dive planning, organization, procedures and techniques.
  • How to adjust your dive computer for altitude diving or calculate altitude dive profiles using the RDP Table or eRDP™.
  • How to avoid problems and handle emergency situations, if they occur, at altitude.
  • Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.

What scuba gear will you use?

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you may need a dry suit for the cool water. Your PADI Instructor may suggest additional equipment depending on the dive site features and visibility. Check with the local dive center to get advice about diving at altitude.
