NAUI Advanced Level Scuba Certification NES-VA011



The NAUI Advanced Level Scuba Certification NES-VA011 consists of the following three courses:


1. The Advanced Open Water Diver Course:


This course will help you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your Instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun scuba diving.


2. Underwater Digital Imaging Diver:


In the NAUI Underwater Photographer Course, you will be taught the skills, techniques, and tricks of underwater photography including lighting, use of photographic equipment, the fundamentals of photography, underwater camera techniques, and underwater photo problems.


3. Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries Course:


Administering emergency oxygen is the preferred first aid for scuba diving injuries, and early administration can drastically improve the outcome for an injured diver. The DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries Course teaches you how to administer life-saving oxygen first aid to divers who may be suffering from decompression illness (DCI). Additionally, this course will teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of decompression illness and respond to them accordingly. The emergency response skills taught in this course are not unique to scuba diving; they’re applicable to many other watersports and other activities.




To enroll in this course:

Divers must be a minimum of 10 years of age, in good health, and must be previously certified as a NAUI Scuba Diver or equivalent.

The Scuba Gear You Use:


You will use all the basic scuba gear, including your underwater compass. Depending on which three adventure dives you pick, you may also be introduced to underwater photography equipment, a dive light, lift bags, a dive flag/float, or other specialty gear.

This course includes:


1. eLearning for all three courses

2. Physical Certification Cards for all three courses

3. Digital Cards for all three courses


Course tuition includes rental of all other required scuba equipment including buoyancy compensator device (BCD), weights, tanks, and computer. In the Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by an Underwater Adventures Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.


What you will need:

Students must own or purchase a scuba-grade mask, snorkel, fins, and booties.  Come into the store and we will help you obtain a personalized fit.  All of the above items will also work great for snorkeling.
