Are you a PADI® Professional who wants to become more aware of individual considerations when working with people who have physical or mental challenges? PADI Professionals have a long and successful history of working with divers with disabilities. PADI’s approach to diver education is (and always has been) inclusive: Everyone who meets a course’s prerequisites is welcome to enroll. The PADI Adaptive Techniques Specialty course builds on that foundation by enhancing the training PADI Professionals receive, and preparing them for student-centred and prescriptive approaches when adapting techniques to meet diver needs.
The course consists of knowledge development, two confined water skill development workshops and two open water workshops.
PADI Divemasters or PADI Master Freedivers who have completed EFR Primary and Secondary Care course within 24 months are eligible to take the PADI Adaptive Techniques Specialty course.
