The PADI Advanced Open Water course takes 2-3 days and upon completion you will be certified to dive up to 30m/100ft.
The course focuses to improve your abilities as a diver. It is based on five open water dives (usually done in 2 days) and for each one you need to read between 10-20 pages in the PADI Advanced Open Water manual and answer the knowledge review before the corresponding dive. Before each dive you will review the theory with your instructor and after each dive you will receive a feedback about your performance.
