PADI Course Flowchart

Your SCUBA diving education does not end after your Open Water Diver course. Dive Source offers continuing education opportunities through a variety of agencies with an even wider variety of courses including recreational courses, refresher courses, and technical courses.

PADI is the certifying agency we use for most courses, and below is the track to reach Master SCUBA Diver - the highest level below professional/technical levels.

The Flow Charts works as follows:

Open Water Diver - The first course most students take.

The top row is the courses a student can take one after the other and are all required to reach Master Diver. Dark Blue courses denote specialties, and can be taken at any time so long as the course along the top row has been completed already. For example, to do the "Ice Diver" specialty a student must be Advanced already.

A "Master SCUBA Diver" - the ultimate level of course knowledge below professional/technical levels - a student must be a Rescue Diver with 5 specialties under their belt.

Courses in Black are professional level courses.
