PSAI Advanced Sport Diver Programs

PSAI philosophy is that the term advanced open water diver should truly reflect a knowledgeable and well trained scuba diver, who has gone beyond the least common denominator and taken the time to acquire the skills and knowledge from various fields in the open water sport diving arena.

 

The PSAI advanced sport diver ratings will be a testament that you have had such quality training.
