The purpose of this course is to give the diver an overview of 5 different specialties, 2 core, and 3 additional SDI Specialties. The two core specialties are, SDI Deep and Navigation. One dive, from each of the specialties, may apply toward a complete specialty certification. Overhead environments and non-diving specialties are not allowed, and do not count toward the 3 chosen specialties. If one of the elected specialties is computer nitrox, dry suit, night-limited visibility, full face mask, DPV, search and recovery, and/ or Sidemount, the instructor must hold the corresponding SDI Specialty Instructor rating. It is recommended for the student to work on advanced buoyancy during this program, it may even count as one of the five specialties required to receive the Advanced Adventure Diver rating.
