There's often so much to see when diving in Malaysia, beautiful coral reefs and amazingly colourful fish, that you'll want to make the most of each stay. So, to maximise your bottom time and your underwater adventure, you should learn how to plan and carry out a multilevel dive.
In the old days, scuba divers would make single-depth dive plans. Profiles were calculated from the water's surface down to a maximum depth, then back to the surface again. These days, dive computers allow us to continually analyze our depth, giving us more bottom time on each dive. If you'd like to understand more about dive computers to plan multi-level dives, then the Multilevel Diver Specialty is for you.
During your Multilevel Diver programme, you'll go on 2 open water dives, both of which can be conducted in 1 day. During the first dive you'll plan and complete a 2-level dive, and on the second dive you'll execute a 3-level dive. You'll also be exposed to a variety of different types of multilevel calculators (the Wheel and various types of diving computers).
Topics covered on this course include:
To join this course, you need to be a PADI Open Water Diver (or Junior) and at least 12 years old. You'll need your standard scuba gear, plus a dive computer and a slate to record information. The elective Multilevel Dive from the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or Adventures in Diving may count toward the certification requirements for this specialty course.
