How do I begin?
You start with the training materials. We will provide you with the PADI Drysuit Diver manual for you to read and answer the questions prior to the start of your training.
What's in the course?
The first thing you'll discover is which dry suit style and accompanying undergarments are right for you and the diving you'll do. Then you'll learn how to take care of your dry suit. During two dives, in addition to a confined water dive, you'll practice:
- Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
- Mastering buoyancy control using your dry suit.
- Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
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 instructor about earning credit.
You will watch the PADI Drysuit Diver video and your PADI instructor will talk to you about diving in a drysuit, then you will put into practice what you learn in a combination of skills in one confined water and two open water training dives.
