Who should take this course?
In the old days, dive profiles were calculated from the surface down to a maximum depth, then back to the surface. Now, dive computers continually analyze your depth – giving you more bottom time for going shallower and allowing you to maximize your dive time. If you’d like to understand more about dive computers and learn how you can use tools like the eRDPML to plan multilevel dives, then the Multilevel Diver Specialty course is for you.
If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Multilevel Diver course.
What will you learn?
You'll review decompression theory as it relates to multilevel diving and dive computer models, and plan multilevel dives using the eRDPML. During the first of your two multilevel dives, you’ll plan and execute a two-level dive, and on the second dive, you’ll complete a three-level scuba dive.
Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your MDC instructor about earning credit.
What scuba gear will you use?
Besides your basic scuba equipment, you’ll want to have your own dive computer and a slate to record dive information. Ask your MDC PADI Instructor what additional equipment you may need for your multilevel scuba dives.
