The objective of this course is for the diver to gain additional knowledge to upgrade knowledge already attained at the Open Water Diver course. Thus, the diver becomes more skilled and therefore feels more comfortable in the water.
The course consists of five specialities, three of which are a requirement and two are elective. It is not the intent of this course to increase the depth, time or equipment limitations as stated in the ANDI Open Water Diver standards.
The AOW represents someone who seeks out more instruction and experience to enhance their confidence, safety and fun.
