You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving. No matter what your scuba interest the Oakville Divers PADI Advanced course is the perfect addition to your ongoing diving education. 

What Do I Need to Start Oakville PADI Advanced Training?

  • PADI Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Minimum age: 15 (12 for PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver)

What will you do?

  • Complete the e-Learning modules

What will you learn?

There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.

During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. 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 – night diving, buoyancy control, search & recovery, exploring wrecks and many more.

How long will it take?

The PADI Advanced course is a self study program. Once you complete the online knowledge review for each of your Adventure Dives, it’s time to do your diving. Dives are conducted on the weekends (and one evening for Deep and Night Dive). There is no written exam for the Padi Advanced Scuba course. Your fun scuba diving experiences are your only test. Oakville Divers Instructors are on the scuba dives if you have any questions.

I got scuba lessons for my nephew for his birthday, and we just completed our open water (certification) dive yesterday. Fantastic experience. The classes were great, and the in-pool sessions helpful for practice - but the thing that impressed me most was the people and the sense of community.

Rob and the team are great people who teach and help. I think this sport can be gear-snobish and technical - but they were so down to earth, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you learn and have a good experience.

Would definitely recommend to anyone. It was a great activity for us to do together, and we'll be back for more dives!

Great experience learning how to dive. Robert is a great instructor. I love anything about being underwater. I would recommend it for anyone interested.

My wife and I obtained our Open Water certification last summer / fall with Rob and his team. They were uniformly patient, supportive and capable instructors. As we are currently preparing for our first dive vacation, the staff at Oakville Divers have continued to offer support, advice and assistance. We have attended the "drop in" practice pool sessions and the dive masters are always prepared to provide gentle reminders and guidance. Highly recommended!!
