SPECIALTY

PADI Specialty courses introduce you to a variety of specialist diving activities in which you can also earn a separate diving certification. Each of the courses consists of a number of adventure dives ranging between 2 and 4 depending on the complexity of that particular specialist activity. They involve a certain amount of knowledge development, generally one chapter per dive with each successive chapter and corresponding dive building on the one before.

The adventure dives from the specialty courses program also form an integral part of the PADI Adventure Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water Diver courses. Each adventure dive that you participate in during these courses is synonymous with the adventure dive for the corresponding specialty course. For example if you have logged a night adventure dive during your advanced course then effectively you have also completed dive one of the night diver specialty course. As such you will receive additional credit for having done this training if you choose to complete the remaining course requirements to become certified as a PADI Night Diver Specialist.

Undoubtedly each of the PADI specialty courses are in their own right a worthwhile pursuit. However if you can complete more than 5 specialties as well as achieve your PADI rescue diver rating and have proof of more than 50 logged dives then you become eligible to be certified as a PADI Master Scuba Diver! This is the highest non-professional rating in the PADI continuing education system and awarded only to divers who have proven their diving excellence
