The Solo Diver Certification Course offered at Aqua Adventures teaches experienced divers the procedures  [Equipment Requirements] for diving safe independent of a dive partner. The dive community realizes that many divers dive by themselves, but this in no way makes them a "solo diver". They're neither trained nor knowledgeable in the hazards to which they may be exposing themselves to. Our Solo Diver Course examines the benefits, hazards, and procedures for conducting solo dives. Completing this course empowers you with specific knowledge, enabling you to make a sound risk analysis when engaging in this type of diving.
This course also strengthens your buddy team skills by stressing dive planning, personal limitations, accident prevention as well [Equipment SDI Solo Diver]  as the benefits, potential hazards and proper procedures of diving solo. In the Solo Diver Course you will also learn the the additional equipment required for solo diving, and the proper configuration of that equipment. This course is ideally suited to underwater photography and underwater video divers.
The SDI Solo Diver Course is not suitable for every diver because divers must be willing to make the necessary commitment to train and equip themselves to manage the added risks that solo diving involves.
