SSI's Advanced Adventurer program was created so that you can try out a variety of specialties before you commit to completing a full program. It's a great way to experience what advanced training is all about and how valuable it can be to your diving adventures. During the Advanced Adventurer Program, you will have the chance to try out 5 different specialties. You will complete one open water training dive per specialty, and if you decide to take a full program in any of the specialties you tried, the dive you took can be applied to your advanced certification.
Advanced Open Water Diver
Certification is the patent you get after completing 4 specialty courses and 24 logged dives. We therefore propose 4 full courses of 4 specialty lectures and 10 dives in open water. This includes the release of the SSI international patent and the use of teaching materials.
Specialty Programs allow you to improve your skills under the water and therefore your safety, comfort and fun, gaining experience under the direct supervision of an instructor. To each specialty a lecture and 2 dives (3 dives for the deep specialty) will be devoted. The course includes the release of the SSI international patent and the use of teaching materials.

Proper buoyancy control can only be mastered with proper training. The Perfect Buoyancy program will improve your swimming position and reduce your effort which will lead to less air consumption. In addition, proper buoyancy control is the best skill for environmental protection and for underwater photography.
To become a safe and confident diver, it is critical to develop an understanding of navigation.

Night and Limited Visibility
Whether it's day or night, limited visibility can be an adventure. Just because the visibility is limited doesn't mean the opportunities have to be. This program is filled with information about planning and conducting night and limited visibility dives for fun, adventure, and exploration.
