National Geographic

The National Geographic Diver programme takes two forms; the National Geographic Diver course, for non-certified divers, and the National Geographic Portal for certified divers.

National Geographic Diver

If you're considering learning to dive and have an interest in the world in which we live, the National Geographic Diver program is the perfect way to integrate the PADI Open Water Diver course - the world's leading dive certification - with the wisdom and experience of National Geographic. Designed to integrate with the Open Water Diver Course, the National Geographic Diver programme contains the same materials you'll get as part of the Open Water course along with the National Geographic Almanac and course DVD. You also get a leatherette NG binder which looks really neat, and we also throw in an underwater camera you can keep after the course.
Issueable only through a National Geographic Dive Centre, the National Geographic Diver certification is aimed at developing higher standards of diving through a combination of skills and knowledge training and assessment. By completing it, you demonstrate not only a knowledge of the environmental issues facing our planet and your place in "the grand scheme of things" but also that you've got the skills and awareness to act responsibly as a diver.

You'll earn the National Geographic Diver certification by completing the 5 academic and confined water modules from the Open Water Diver course, with some extra practice on your buoyancy skills, and then you'll complete the 4 certification dives for the Open Water course, followed by two more open water dives during which you'll hover horizontally, head-up and head-down, complete an exploration project during which you'll survey a small area of a dive site looking for the details you'd otherwise miss and take pictures, and a series of navigation exercises. You'll also complete a knowledge review based on the knowledge you gain from studying the National Geographic Almanac and DVD.

Upon completion of the National Geographic Diver course you'll earn the National Geographic Diver certification - probably the smartest-looking certification card you'll see in diving, and one that marks you out as a diver who's at the top of the tree.

National Geographic Portal

If you're already a certified diver, the National Geographic Portal is the perfect way for you to earn a distinctive and prestigious certification.

Issueable only through a National Geographic Dive Centre, the National Geographic Diver certification is aimed at developing a higher standard of diving through a combination of skills and knowledge training and assessment. By completing it, you demonstrate not only a knowledge of the environmental issues facing our planet and your place in "the grand scheme of things" but also that you've got the skills and awareness to act responsibly as a diver.

As a certified diver already, you'll earn the National Geographic Diver credential by completing some additional buoyancy exercises during which you'll hover horizontally, head-up and head-down, an exploration project during which you'll survey a small area of a dive site looking for the details you'd otherwise miss and take pictures (we'll even give you a re-useable underwater camera to keep as part of your course), and a series of navigation exercises. You'll also complete a knowledge review based on the knowledge you gain from studying the National Geographic Almanac and DVD.

Upon completion of the National Geographic Portal you'll earn the National Geographic Diver certification - probably the smartest-looking certification card you'll see in diving, and one that marks you out as a diver who's at the top of the tree.
