PADI Scuba Diving Courses

Completing PADI courses and gaining your PADI certification card unlocks adventure in all corners of the globe. In addition, as a certified diver, you join a global community of ocean defenders that is made up of millions of other divers around the world.

That being said, your underwater journey is entirely your own. After earning your first diving certification your PADI Open Water Diver, you’ll want to explore everything the ocean has to offer, and continue the adventure by completing your PAID Advanced Open Water and PAID Rescue Diver.

PADI Specialities

Once you’re a certified scuba diver, you’ll likely want to continue your education and learn special skills to enhance your diving experiences. PADI Specialty Diver Courses are a great way to expand your scuba knowledge. These courses are more granular than the ‘core’ courses, usually focusing on a specific dive skill, such as buoyancy, photography, or fish identification. 

Taking a specialty course is easier than ever now that many of the courses are available with eLearning. This option provides a convenient way to complete the independent study portion of the course. You can study at your own pace on your desktop, laptop or mobile device. This also cuts down on the paper products needed to produce educational course materials.

Wondering which specialty course to take first? Here are the five most popular PADI Specialty courses right now. Nitrox, Deep Diver, Dry Suit Diver, Wreck Diver and Peak Performance Buoyancy
