However, in case there are some that are more popular than the others let us look through some of these popular courses.
One of the most sought after of the specialized courses is the Enriched Air diver’s course. This course makes use of the enriched air nitrox while diving. The advantage of this technique is that there is no need for decompression time during diving. This implies that you can get more time underwater. Another of the popular forms of diving is the dry suit diving. This form of diving is more popular in those areas where cold currents flow. This kind of diving keeps you dry and even warm. However, there has to be an instructor around to show how to manage a dry suit and how to control the buoyancy.
Another popular specialized divers’ instructor’s course is wreck diving, where you are taught how to direct a team to dive in and around a sunken ship and hunt for hidden treasures. This is indeed a very exciting form of diving and has captured the attention of many since time immemorial. Another really useful specialized instructor’s course is the Emergency Oxygen Provider course. This course will teach you how to help a diver (professional or non-professional) to use oxygen when suffering from decompression illness. These are few of the popular courses that could be undertaken by you. Specialized instructors’ course is quite important to get to the next level of PADI IDC.
