PADI Self-Reliant Diver with DIVE Northampton
Often referred to as Solo Diving, developed for those divers who anticipate that in-water problems will have to be sorted out by themselves, the purpose of the Self-Reliant Diver specialty course is to recognise and accept the role of the buddy system and its contributions to diver safety while identifying and developing self-reliance and independence while diving. There are two reasons for an experienced diver to take the Self-Reliant diver course:
To develop the skills of planning and carrying out dives without a partner when preferred or necessary.
To sharpen skills of diving self-reliance, making the diver a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.
