Why PADI Specialty Courses?

While you have been diving for a while, there are always skills that we can improve upon. If you are interested in a specific type of diving, the Specialty courses take you deeper into those realms. They hone your skills, educate you and make you a better and safer diver.

What Specialties does AZDT teach? 
AZDT Instructors are certified to train you in multiple PADI specialties including: Enriched Air Diver, Underwater Navigator, Digital Underwater Photographer, Wreck Diver, Night Diver, Deep Diver, Search & Recovery, Emergency First Response, Dry Suit, Boat Diver, Drift Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Dive Propulsion Vehicle Diver.

Some of the most rewarding specialties with our Customers include the following Specialties:

Nitrox Diver 
Nitrox is a mixture of breathing gas that has more Oxygen than the normal air that we breath. It extends dive time since your body does not absorb as much Nitrogen by extending your decompression limit. Nitrox does NOT allow you to dive deeper - simply longer.
This Specialty certifies you to dive with Nitrox - up to 40%. It consists of One (1) day of classroom sessions and a trip to San Diego for 2 days of diving.

Wreck Diver 
Every year, divers get themselves in trouble when they decide to venture into shipwrecks without the proper training or equipment. Don't let this happen to you! Ocean Planet Scuba Dive Center trains divers in the skills and equipment needed to safely penetrate shipwrecks, within the recreational PADI limits. This course is best performed in confunction with the Nitrox course on the shipwrecks off of San Diego.

Drysuit Diver 
Are you freezing parts of your body off in that wetsuit? Do you want to dive cold water but are tired of being cold and wet? It sounds like you need to check out our drysuit specialty course. Drysuits can be tricky with their dynamic bouyancy so PADI has a course to instruct you in the safe operation of drysuits during diving.

PADI Deep Diver
During your Advancced Open Water Diver course you sampled deep diving. Now it is time to go further. The PADI Deep Diver Specialty will teach you more about the effects of Nitrogen Narcosis, safety and skills necessary to become a proficient deep diver.

PADI Boat Diver
Most divers have dove off of a boat already but how well do they do it? Are you one of those people who has a gear explosion on the boat deck, fumbles around while trying to get in the water and gets lost as soon as you jump in? Well even if you aren't, the PADI Boat Diver specialty helps to make you a safer and more efficient boat diver. The course covers boat deck activities, entry/exit, surface coordination, signals, drift kit management and ascent/descent in the open water.
