PADI Self-Reliant Diver Specialty Course in Bali

PADI Dive Course Description

The purpose of the Self-Reliant Diver Specialty Course is to recognize and accept the role of the buddy system, and its contributions to diver safety, while identifying and developing self-reliance and independence whilst diving.

There are two reasons for an experienced diver to take the Self-Reliant diver course:

PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty Course in Bali, Indonesia
  • To develop the skills of planning and carrying out dives without a partner when preferred or necessary.
  • To sharpen the skills of diving self-reliance, making the diver a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.

The course covers aspects where diving alone may be applicable, and the need to compensate for those situations, including dive planning, life support system readiness, adaptive training, equipment and responsibility.

This course is an introduction to self-reliant diving that helps student divers develop the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary to rely on themselves first, whether or not they are diving with a partner, including:

  • The value and application of the buddy system.
  • The philosophy of, and motivation for, diving without a partner.
  • Potential risks of diving alone, and how to manage those risks.
  • The value of equipment redundancy and what back-up equipment is needed.
  • Dive planning and gas management.
