PADI Adaptive Support Diver Speciality

Diving is an inclusive support and Dive Rutland actively engages with divers who have some level of disability who want to come diving.  We make it happen.  This course will give you the knowledge, you just need to bring the enthusiasm.

Advantages of becoming a PADI Adaptive Support Diver

This course allows you to learn how to best support a dive buddy who has a physical or mental challenge?

The PADI Adaptive Support Diver course is designed to increase your awareness of diver's varying abilities, and explores adaptive techniques to apply while diving or freediving with a buddy who has a disability

What do I need to start the PADI Adaptive Support Diver Speciality?

It is also recommended that you complete the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course beforehand, so you have a better awareness of trim.

If you are a PADI Professional and you want to become more aware of individual considerations when working with people who have physical or mental challenges then the Adaptive Techniques course is one for you.  

Both the PADI Adaptive Support Diver and PADI Adaptive Techniques Course are ran by our very experienced PADI Course Director Tracey, who has a passion for ensuring that anyone who wants to go diving can and provides the safe and secure environment to do just that. So learn from someone who actively applies the skills, practices what will be taught within these courses and the experience gained from things that have and haven't worked.

What will I do during the PADI Adaptive Support Diver Speciality?

Through knowledge development and two diving workshops - one in confined water and one in open water - you'll learn useful techniques that will increase your ability to become a better dive partner to a diver with a disability. You'll gain insight and practical experience as you learn about:

  1. Becoming more aware and mindful of individual considerations when diving with people with disabilities.
  2. Adaptive techniques that can be applied whilst diving with buddies with mental and/or physical challenges.
