PADI Multilevel Diver
In the old days, dive profiles were calculated from the surface down to maximum depth, then back to surface. Now, dive computers continually analyse your depth – giving you more bottom time for going shallower and allowing you to maximise your dive time. If you’d like to understand more about dive computers and learn how to use tools such as the eRDPML to plan multilevel dives, then the Multilevel Diver Speciality course is for you.
What do you need to start?

- You need to be a PADI certified Open Water diver (Junior Open Water diver) or equivalent
