You’ve learned a lot about how to keep yourself safe on a dive as you earned first your Open Water Diver Certification and then your Advanced Open Water Diver Certification. Now you’re ready to look beyond yourself to include the safety of other divers as you learn to take a leadership role to prevent, identify, respond to, and manage diving emergencies. When you are prepared for emergencies, you dive more confidently and more safely.
