NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC DIVE COURSE
Who is eligible to become a National Geographic Diver? The program is open to beginners as well as the experienced diving enthusiast. Experienced divers can become National Geographic Divers by enrolling in the National Geographic Portal.
The National Geographic Diver program allows individuals to become certified scuba divers or, if already certified, the opportunity to increase their diving skills. The program promotes adventure, discovery, exploration, and aquatic conservation. Along with learning basic dive skills and mastering safety information, National Geographic Divers complete a National Geographic Knowledge Review based on information gained by interacting with the National Geographic Diver Almanac and DVD . They also demonstrate the ability to hover in at least three different positions.
During an open water dive, divers participate in an Exploration Project that includes gathering information and creating a visual representation of the dive site detailing specific features. They also may practice navigating a square or rectangle pattern using a compass and natural references or participate in an aquatic life identification exercise.
ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVE COURSE
The First step beyond Open Water Diver Certification, adventures in diving offers more challenging experiences. As you make these dives, you develop skills that make diving more fun, more versatile and that expand the types of dives you can make.
No matter what your interest, remember that you progress at your pace. You don’t have to do everything at once-you can make an Adventure dive here and there as your interests dictate, eventually earning that certification that interest you. Or, you can make a weekend of it and go right through.
