The New Advanced Course of 2017 | PADI IDC | Multi Award Winning Platinum Course Director Holly Macleod

Having already been adopted in the PADI IDC Program with Multi Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod, The New PADI Advanced Open Water Diver program launches this September 2016.

Gili Islands, Indonesia

Before looking at the changes let’s ask Holly what she thinks of the new course.

“The new PADI Advanced Course is fantastic and allows instructors to offer a wider spectrum of specialty areas and provides the diver with more scope and access to continuing education.�?

Firstly the PADI Instructional Material has been updated with updated program standards for both the Instructor Manual and Guide to teaching available online. Students still will have the option of a paper manual but can also now access the material from more personal devices such as a mobile phone with the new, mobile-friendly PADI Advanced Open Water Diver digital products and app.

So basically the first dive of any standardized PADI Specialty Diver Course including DSMB, Cavern, Ice, Full Face Mask and Rebreather which were previously unavailable as an Adventure Dive are now all incorporated as options in the revised Advanced Open water course. Also all of the Project AWARE Specialties are available including Dive Against Debris™, and Shark Conservation Specialty courses

Other revisions include Digital Underwater Photography and Digital Underwater Videography, which are now reclassified as Digital Underwater Imaging; and expansion of the Digital Underwater Photography to include video modules; this dive is now referred to as Digital Imaging. The Navigation Specialty will now also include references to use of an electronic compass

Another new component of the program is the “Think like a Diver�? Section of the course which concentrates on encouraging divers to think about what they’re doing before, during and after every dive and gain a greater understanding of how to manage risks whilst improving their own dive skills. During this section of the course students will consider issues such as gas management, situational awareness and buddy communication.

So in the end it’s easy for experienced instructors to make the change as it provides the student more training options, perhaps in areas of specific interest. This allows the instructor to teach a wider range of specialty areas and could be viewed as an expansion of the current program. For new Instructors having taken the PADI IDC Gili Islands with PADI Course Director Holly Macleod both the current course and the new course are presented.
