There are two ways to reach the advanced level. It does not matter if you have recently completed the Open Water Diver course or already have a few dives under your belt. Diving courses are there for you to gain diving experience and even better when done with a diving instructor.
The easiest way is the SSI Advanced Adventurer course (equivalent to the PADI AOWD). There you will do 5 adventure dives like such as: Deep, Navigation, Drift, Wreck, Buoyancy or Photography.
The more extensive training is the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver program. Each specialty course (except Nitrox) includes 2 to 3 dives and the academics can be completed in advance with e-learning. You will receive a certification card for each specialty course and once you have completed 24 logged dives you will receive the SSI Advanced Open Water Diver recognition card.
At Aloha Diving, all of our continuing education courses (Advanced Open Water Diver Course, Advanced Adventurer Diver Course) are organized to give you the best possible training, in the best possible locations around Phuket. With an unparalleled flexibility on our diving boat we can achieve that straightforward.
