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 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-centered and prescriptive approaches when adapting techniques to meet diver needs.
What will you learn?
The PADI Adaptive Techniques Specialty course focuses on increasing awareness of varying abilities, and explores adaptive teaching techniques to apply when training and diving with physically and mentally challenged divers. The PADI Adaptive Techniques Specialty course will help PADI Professionals:
The course consists of knowledge development, two confined water skill development workshops and two open water workshops. In addition, a subset of this course, PADI Adaptive Support Diver, will interest divers who want to learn how they can best support dive buddies who have physical or mental challenges.
What equipment will you use?
Basic scuba diving equipment.
