The AOWD course increases your confidence, improves your knowledge of dive equipment, diving procedures and general diving theory. Within your training, there are two (2) required dives: Deep and Underwater Navigation. From there, you choose the other three (3) dives, for a total of five (5) dives.

The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time. The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have. (e.g.: photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks, night dives and many more).
