Advanced Courses

There are two courses within the SSI system with similar sounding names. The Advanced Adventurer is a five dive course designed to “jump start” you into a range of speciality dives. It’s our most popular choice straight after the Open Water course. 

The second option is the Advanced Open Water Dive rating. The Advanced Open Water rating is achieved by completing 4 Specialty courses
plus 12 logged dives. SSI standards provision for flexibility of choices in both the Advanced Adventurer and Advanced Scuba Diver. 

Dive Newcastle has chosen dives for the Advanced Adventurer course which are suited to the local dive environment and dovetail into the specialties we have chosen for the Advanced Scuba Diver pathway. 
 
While you can choose any 4 Specialties to become an Advanced Scuba Diver in order to become an Instructor you must complete, amongst other pre requisites, Nitrox, Navigation, Night and Deep specialties. For that reason we have incorporated these specialties in our recommended Advanced Scuba pathway.
